ADV - Minnesota Climate Science - Lunch with a Scientist- Cedar Creek
East Bethel, MN 55005
Join life-long learners for a monthly lunch and learn series at Cedar Creek. Bring your own lunch and hunger for knowledge, we will provide the brain food! If weather permits, we will go outside to see the research action. Please wear closed-toe shoes and dress for the weather.
This month's session features atmospheric scientist Dr. Sam Potter. Sam attended graduate school at Princeton University, where he received a PhD in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences. Minnesota winters have already been impacted by human-caused climate change, and will continue to quickly warm as we head further into the 21st century. Sam will begin with a wrap-up discussion of the recent winter and its connections to global climate phenomena. He will then discuss how Minnesota winters and Minnesota ecosystems are projected to change as the impacts of climate change worsen.
