Dr. Inez Fung Presents How to Use Data and Climate Models to Measure and Verify Global Greenhouse Gas Emissions at Berkeley City College

1 November 2013

Inez Fung

As international, national and local targets for greenhouse gas emissions are discussed and implemented, how well do we know if the targets are being met?

MSRI and Berkeley City College will host “Verifying Greenhouse Gas Emissions,” 7 p.m., Wed., Nov. 6, with Dr. Inez Fung, in Berkeley City College’s auditorium, 2050 Center St., Berkeley. The lecture is part of “Not on the Test: The Pleasures and Uses of Mathematics” series of lectures sponsored by the Simons Foundation (www.simonsfoundation.org) and co-presented by the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute and Berkeley City College.

Auditorium seating is limited so be sure to go RSVP at http://inezfung.bpt.me to obtain your free ticket. You must present your ticket at the door to ensure your admission.

Dr. Fung will demonstrate how data assimilation techniques merge observations with climate change models to test similarity between “bottom-up” reported emissions and “top-down” estimates inferred from their atmospheric signatures. The presentation is free and open to the public.
