Stanford climate scientist to discuss state of climate science, coming risks
Date:2/13/2014

WHO: Chris Field, professor of interdisciplinary environmental studies at Stanford University and co-chair of the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Working Group II.

WHAT: The world is staring down the barrel of climate change that is faster than at any time in the last 65 million years, says climate expert Chris Field. He will speak on the topic.

WHEN: Friday, Feb. 14, 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. CST.

WHERE: American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Annual Meeting, Hyatt Regency, Grand Ballroom B, 151 E. Wacker Dr., Chicago.

Field will discuss "Research Challenges in Managed and Natural Ecosystem Responses to Climate Change" as part of the "Research Challenges in Climate Change: What's New and Where Are We Going?" symposium.

Field will also take part in a related news briefing on Feb. 13 at 2 p.m. CST in the Vevey 3 Room of AAAS Newsroom Headquarters in the Swisstel, 323 East Upper Wacker Dr. The briefing will be streamed live on EurekAlert.org.

In a talk based on a paper he co-authored with Stanford Associate Professor of Environmental Earth System Science Noah Diffenbaugh, Field will describe what analysis of 27 climate models revealed about the pace of climate change and what risks and emerging challenges we should expect.
