Event Description

CWU professors Susan Kaspari (Geological Sciences) and Megan Walsh (Geography) help us envision the future of climate change in the Pacific Northwest by looking into the past. Susan's research examines the impact of black carbon (commonly referred to as soot) on the melting rates of glaciers and seasonal snowpack. Megan's research explores how ancient charcoal deposits can help us understand past fire activity. Taken together, their work can help us understand the complicated relationship between humans, fire, ice/snow, and climate change. Please join us on November 14th at 5:30 pm in the lobby of Dean Hall at CWU. Light refreshments will be served. Where to go for more information: museum@cwu.edu
