Dr. Tapio Schneider
presented: “Global Climate Change: The Known & the Unknown”
A Professor of Environmental Science and Engineering at Caltech, Dr. Tapio Schneider conducts research on the dynamics of the Earth’s climate changes, turbulence, and turbulent transport in the atmosphere and oceans. His research, which uses simulations with climate models and analyses of observational data, focuses on the development of theories of the turbulent fluxes of heat, mass, and water vapor that maintain the global-scale climate. Such theories help us understand the changes in the atmospheric climate that occurred over the Earth’s history and that are likely to occur in the future.
