On April 27 the Bird Homestead and Meeting House Conservancy will present “Hurricanes: Past, Present, and Future” by Dr. Suzana J. Camargo at 3 pm at the Meeting House on Milton Road. She will discuss the science of hurricanes, their relationship to climate change, and how historical information is used in reconstructing hurricane data. Learn how climate change affects hurricane intensity and frequency.
Dr. Camargo, an ocean and climate physicist, is a Lamont Research Professor at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University. She is also the Executive Director of Columbia University’s Initiative on Extreme Weather and Climate. Dr. Camargo has published over 100 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals. In October The New York Times interviewed her for the article, “The Hurricanes, and Climate Change Questions, Keep Coming. Yes, They’re Linked.”
Dr. Camargo’s lecture will be the fifth in the series “When Science Meets History,”
which is funded in part by a grant from the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
Admission free. Donations will be gratefully accepted.
