Science Café: ‘All Coupled Climate Models Are Wrong, Some are Useful,’ Sept. 24

Science Café presents Dr. Ryan Fogt on “All Coupled Climate Models Are Wrong, Some are Useful” on Wednesday, Sept. 24, at 5 p.m. in the Baker Center Front Room.

Global warming is one of the most controversial topics in the world today. But researchers who study climate agree that climate models are essential to further our understanding.

“Anthropogenic, which is the human influence on nature, climate change is one of the biggest environmental issues of our time and for future generations,” said Fogt, Assistant Professor of Meteorology.

Watch on A&S TV.

The event will be live-streamed on Wednesday and archived, and the online audience is invited to submit questions.

Science Cafés and Café Conversations are held at 5 p.m. on Wednesdays in the Baker Center Front Room. Free coffee is provided for the first 50 people. Both cafés are venues for students to share their interests informally during a conversation exchange in a friendly setting. The Science Cafe is hosted by Dr. Sarah Wyatt, Professor of Environmental and Plant Biology and Vice President of the Ohio University Chapter of Sigma Xi. The two series are sponsored by the Ohio University chapter of Sigma Xi and the Office of the Vice President for Research.
