Climate scientist Lonnie Thompson
Talk by renowned OSU climate scientist Lonnie Thompson as part of the Cuyahoga Valley Institute’s Lyceum series.
A paleoclimatologist and self-taught mountaineer, Dr. Lonnie Thompson has spent decades researching glaciers. His travels have taken him to some of the most rugged locations on the planet. Dr. Thompson states, “I believe ice is our best archive of the history of the Earth’s climate. Understanding how the climate system works and has worked… is absolutely essential for any prediction of what’s going to happen to the climate in the future.”
Join Dr. Thompson to discover what his work reveals. Hear about the adventure and challenge of first reaching study sites and then collecting, transporting, and interpreting sample ice cores.
Fostering fresh perspectives and lasting connections, Cuyahoga Valley Institute’s Lyceum series presents in-depth and engaging content from experts in history, adventure, and the natural world.
