Greenhouse gases and surface temperatures at EGU (17-22 Apr)

At the next General Assembly of the European Geoscientific Union (EGU) in Vienna (17-22 April 2016) I will again contribute to two sessions. I convene the session on greenhouse gas fluxes on local, regional and global scales using atmosphere, ocean and biosphere measurements.The EarthTemp session on measuring the surface temperatures of Earth, which I convened in previous years, is also in the programme again; this time Darren Ghent (Uni Leicester) is the main convener. The sessions are part of the work within the Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Feedback Programme and the EarthTemp Network.

Climate and History: Cultures in the 22nd century AD - Talk in Nuremberg, 18 Oct 2017

On Wednesday, 18 October 2017, I will give a presentation at the Society Society for Natural History (NHG) in Nuremberg on the Crisis of the civilisations in Antiquity around the 22nd century AD. At this time, the Old Kongdom and the Akkad Empire collapsed. Climatological data show a drought that affected manz parts of the World from North Africa to India and China. What happened to the climate, and how did it affect civilisations?

The presentation is in German and will start at 19.30 in the Katharinensaal of Nuremberg's City Library, Am Katharinenkloster 6.
