The Science is Clear: A Conversation about Climate Change

Thursday, November 2 ~ 4:30pm in the PAB



This presentation will begin with a screening of the film “Before the Flood” which stars Academy Award winner Leonardo DiCaprio. Following the film, climatologist Dr. Leila Carvalho from the University of California at Santa Barbara, will speak briefly about relevant issues raised in the film leaving time for the audience to ask questions and join the conversation.

Dr. Carvalho is a Professor in the Department of Geography and Researcher at the Earth Research Institute, UCSB. She has a B.S., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Meteorology from the University of São Paulo, Brazil. Her research interests are in regional and large-scale climate variability and modeling, global climate change and scaling processes in geophysics. These topics include (but are not limited to) climate variation and change in monsoon regions, tropical-extratropical interactions, extreme precipitation and temperature, and regional modeling.
