Evening @ Skidaway program to examine the science of climate prediction

The University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanogaphy will kick off its 2019 Evening @ Skidaway speaker series on Tuesday, April 9 with a program on the science of predicting climate and climate modeling. The talk will be the first of nine Evening @ Skidaway programs to be presented on a monthly basis through December.

Daniel Ohnemus

The talk by researcher Daniel Ohnemus is titled “Understanding Climate Models – History, Forcings and the Future,” and will examine models of planetary climate, which are highly complex computations involving many moving parts. How well can we predict the future given this complexity? In this talk he examine the history and major internal drivers, or forcings, of modern climate models to understand how they work and where the uncertainties lie.

The Evening @ Skidaway program will be presented in the McGowan Library on the University of Georgia Skidaway Marine Science Campus. (10 Ocean Science Circle, Savannah, GA 31411) The evening will begin with a reception at 6:30 p.m., followed by the talk at 7 p.m.

All programs are open to the public, and admission is free. Space is limited. To reserve a seat, please call (912) 598-2325 or email mike.sullivan@skio.uga.edu.
