The next presentation in the U.S. Geological Survey’s public monthly lecture series, “Climate Change 101″ given by Dr. Tom Armstrong, will be held on Wednesday August 5, 2009 at 7:00 PM at the Dallas L. Peck Memorial Auditorium at the USGS Headquarters.
Climate change is an issue of increasing public concern because of its potential effects on land, water, and biological resources. In the next several years, the United States will be challenged to make management and policy decisions as well as develop adaptation and mitigation strategies that will require anticipating the effects of a changing climate and its impacts on humans and ecosystems. The USGS has a well-regarded history in studying these potential effects and understanding climate change science.
