Paleoclimatologist to discuss his work at La Jolla’s Birch Aquarium

Paleoclimatologist Jeff Severinghaus

Drilling down thousands of feet into the ancient ice preserved on Earth’s massive continental ice sheets allows scientists to extract a wealth of information about climate history — including periods both much colder and considerably warmer than today.

Paleoclimatologist Jeff Severinghaus will describe the work being done in this field, 7-8 p.m. Monday, April 14 as part of the Jeffrey B. Graham Perspectives on Ocean Science Lecture Series at Birch Aquarium at Scripps, 2300 Expedition Way, La Jolla.

Tickets are $8 ($5 students/teachers) and includes aquarium admission and parking. Light refreshments will be served. (858) 534-5771.
