On April 30, the Harvard Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences will be hostingythe inaugural Harvard Crimson Climate (HCC) Workshop. The workshop will bring together students from across the Northeast for a one-day event to foster research collaborations on the frontiers of climate dynamics. In the morning and afternoon, there will be 12-minute presentations by selected students, bracketing a lunch talk by the keynote speaker, Dr. Tapio Schneider. The workshop will conclude with an afternoon poster session. The workshop will take place in the Harvard Geological Museum building, located at 24 Oxford St., Cambridge MA.
Registration and Abstract Submission
Please submit your abstract and fill out the registration form by March 15 if you wish to attend. There is no fee.
Talks will be 12 minutes in length with 3 minutes for questions.
Our keynote speaker is Dr. Tapio Schneider, of Caltech, whose research is focused on understanding how the turbulent dynamics of the atmosphere, from clouds to large-scale weather systems, shape earth’s climate.
