                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       The topics below provide an immersive and dynamic opportunity for learning about many of the various scientific concepts related to climate change and are provided by scientists from the NASA GISS research community. Each of you are requested to attend the webinars to develop an in depth understanding of the type of work that GISS does relative to the sciences of climate change.

This is an opportunity to learn about the science of climate change from the leading experts at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) and affliate institutions and orgranizations. Please register immeadiatly for this webinar. Registration links for future webinars will be sent to you in future notices for the additional programs as described below. Please mark your calendars for the additional webinars below.

These presentations are a monthly series hosted by CCRUN, a NOAA RISA Team and supported by the NASA GSFC Office of Education at Goddard Institute for Space Studies. The lectures are drawn from the recent book, Our Warming Planet: Topics in Climate Dynamics, published by World Scientific.

The series encompasses topics such as natural and anthropogenic climate forcing, climate modeling, radiation, clouds, atmospheric dynamics and storms, hydrology, cryosphere, paleoclimate, sea level rise, agriculture, atmospheric chemistry, and climate change education. 

The lecture series is for students, teachers, and interested researchers and colleagues around the world to be better able to understand various aspects of climate change. Please distribute this opportunity to students, colleagues and community members whom are interested in learning about the sciences associated with climate change.

The book, containing most of the material in this webinar series, can be purchased as an e-book, soft cover, or hard cover copy at the World Scientific Publishing website: 

Webinars will take place monthly on Tuesdays from 4:00–6:00PM. No purchase of book necessary for viewing the webinar series.
