The Bowers welcomes Aradhna Tripati, an award-winning geoscientist, climatologist, and professor at UCLA. She is Associate Professor of the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, has over 3,000 citations for her research, and is a leading scientist in the field of climate change and clumped isotope geochemistry. Tripati will highlight various effects that environmental change has had on the Weddell Sea in the past 100 years, why this change may be dramatic considering the area’s geological history, and how various changes to ice packs in Antarctica can affect Southern California. Hear her speak on how early scientists such as Ernest Shackleton have helped broaden the field of climatology and climate change, and how the Antarctic environment has changed since Shackleton’s time.
