TIC Talk Series: Influences of Humans on Planet Earth: 7 Billion and Counting

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Influences of Humans on Planet Earth: 7 Billion and Counting features brief research presentations, followed by a panel discussion on climate change modeling and regional air pollution issues.

The presentations will outline the problem of sustainability as it relates to population and affluence growth, with a look at the “big picture” of global population, energy consumption, and CO2 emissions. Professor Jaffe will connect these issues to his research on the sources and chemistry of pollutants and Professor Salathe will discuss the implications of these changes for our climate in the Pacific Northwest.

About TIC Talks:
UW Bothell faculty members discuss the real-world applications of their research at Technology, Innovation and Creativity (TIC) Talks, sponsored by the Office of Research. These interactive sessions, held Monday-Thursday at noon, highlight topics ranging from games for education to organizational innovation. The community is invited to join faculty, staff and students for these lively presentation-and-discussion sessions.

Lunch, with sandwiches, cookies and beverages, will be provided by the Office of Research.
