16th Annual Kendall Lecture: Climate data comes in a rich variety of quality with varying time and space resolutions. Although increasing volumes of climate data are now generated by computer models, scientists are totally dependent on active and passive methods to reconstruct the state and changing state of the climate. Such measurements are directly linked to our ability to simulate and predict climate. The wonder of all this data is being able to deduce changes and variations in the Earth’s climate from a surprisingly robust set of independent methods to reconstruct past and present climate from an exponentially growing set of data.
The Kendall Lecture takes place on April 18, 2017, in MIT Building 32 room 123, 5 – 6:30 pm unless otherwise noted.
