Happy Hour and lecture: A Geologist’s Look at Climate Change


What can the earth’s climate 100 or 1,000 years ago teach us about what is happening today? What can geological studies tell us about how much of today’s climate change may be natural, and how much due to human activity?

Come hear from one of the country’s leading scientists in the field, Brown’s Professor of Geological Sciences, Tim Herbert, on a topic called, “A Geologist’s Look at Climate Change.”

This event is being underwritten by the Brown Club of Oregon and the Brown Alumni Association to keep the cost at $10 per person, including hearty seafood appetizers and drinks. Space is limited to 25 participants on a first-come basis. Please see details below.
