Global Warming - Lone Star Impacts

by Dr. Gerald R. North
Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography,
Harold J. Haynes Endowed Chair in Geosciences at Texas A&M University



What is the Lecture About?

Climate change is coming to Texas but how much and in what ways will Texas be affected by global warming? Will central Texas become a desert? Will rainfall actually increase? Will there be more wildfires? Will there be more hurricanes? What kind of climate change does Texas need to be ready for? Climate expert Gerald North will discuss climate change and its effect on the Lone Star state and its people.


Presenter's Biosketch

Professor Gerald R. North is the Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography, and holder of the Harold J. Haynes Endowed Chair in Geosciences at Texas A&M University. North and his research group study climate change and its origins. They work with simplified climate models which lend themselves to analytical study, estimation theory as applied to observing systems, and the testing of all climate models through statistical approaches.
