The Mathematics of Climate Seminar

The Scientific Case for Anthropogenic Warming II

School of Mathematics

11:15 Tuesday, September 17, 2019

570 Vincent Hall

Scientific evidence overwhelmingly indicates that the Earth's surface temperature is warming and that the primary cause of the warming is the increase in the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The evidence also indicates that human activity is the major source of the increase.

Time and Location

The meetings are held in 570 Vincent Hall at 11:15 on Tuesdays, followed by an extended discussion over lunch at the Bona Restaurant.

WebEx Session

We will broadcast the seminar to remote participants via Zoom. If you would like to receive a weekly invitation to the sessions, please send an email to Maria Sanchez <>.

This seminar examines some of the simpler mathematical models of climate in the recent literature. Participants are encouraged to read a paper and report on it to the other participants, but passive participation is also welcomed. Course credit can be arranged either through the School of Mathematics or the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior by arrangement with the organizers.


This seminar is associated with the NSF sponsored Mathematics and Climate Research Network.
