S01 - 
Diving into our Climate: Exploring the Causes and Consequences of Climate Change
   
  This two-day seminar will cover fundamentals of climate change, with a focus on the causes and consequences of climatic warming. We will examine climatic change over the past 800,000 years, and address how the current climate change situation differs from the geologic past. We will focus on consequences of warming in both terrestrial and aquatic systems and use existing datasets to explore how climatic warming has altered rates of soil respiration (the natural flux of CO2 out of soils), rates of sea level rise, and Arctic sea ice. The seminar will also address other critical changes associated with climate change including ocean acidification, permafrost thaw, and projections of global temperatures depending on various emission scenarios. Throughout the course, we will address current science laboratory activities that relate to climate change and examine a variety of potential solutions to tackle climate change.
