If you have a question about this talk, please contact Kate Trumper.

In conjunction with the Cambridge Science Festival and Leverhulme Climate Symposium.

Join Dr Eric Wolff from the British Antarctic Survey and Dr Aradhna Tripati from the Department of Earth Sciences as they unlock the climate of the past from ice cores and sedimentary records. Dr Wolff will discuss how ice cores have shown how climate and greenhouse gases worked together over the last 800,000 years and that the challenge now is to use this knowledge to understand how it will react to our influence over the next century. Aradhna Tripati will describe what is known about the response of the oceans and climate to rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, based on geochemical and fossil records of environmental changes during the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum.
