Climate Projections over North America in the Coming Decades
Wednesday, May 8, 2013 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM (EDT)

Please join us for a free lecture for the graduate level and above scientific community on the Science of Climate. Due to limited seating, tickets are required and will be available online on a first come, first served basis through Eventbrite. Inquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Science of Climate series schedule is available here.
Earth’s climate trajectory over the next few decades will be influenced both by human-induced climate change and by internally generated variability in the climate system. This lecture highlights the substantial contribution of internal variability to projected climate trends over North America in the next 50 years.
