2010 Chapman Lecture Schedule

The thick sedimentary sequences of the high north Pacific, the Bering Sea, and Chukchi Sea north of the Bering Strait, contain a rich, hi-resolution record of the Earth's climatic environment leading to our present, rapidly changing one.

The 2010 Spring Semester Chapman Seminar Series presents a reading of this record, knowledge of which is crucial to understand how our linked atmospheric, ecologic, and oceanographic systems work and the perspective this knowledge promises about what might happen next.

3:40 pm - 5:10 pm in the GI Auditorium
