Green Drinks: What happens in the Arctic doesn’t stay in the Arctic

Join us for an evening with Dr. Erich Osterberg to learn about his research on Arctic climate change using ice cores!  We’ll learn how rapid changes in the Arctic – warming at the fastest rate in the world – impact sea level and extreme storms here in New England. We’ll see how ice cores are collected from the highest mountaintops in Alaska and the Greenland Ice Sheet, and how they help us better understand the climate changes we’re seeing today and what’s to come in the future. Erich will also discuss recent progress to reduce climate impacts locally and internationally.

Erich is an Associate Professor of Earth Science at Dartmouth who studies how earth’s climate system and glaciers responded to natural climate changes in the past, and how they are responding to human-­caused climate change today. In addition to his research and teaching at Dartmouth, Erich is the chair of the Upper Valley Climate Adaptation Workgroup, a group of municipal, non-profit, governmental, business, and academic leaders working to increase community resilience to climate change.
