von Karman Lecture Series- April 2007




This month’s lecture:  

Hot Topic, Cool Science: The Greenhouse Effect and the Orbiting Carbon Observatory

Summary :  
Carbon dioxide is the primary greenhouse gas released into the atmosphere by fossil fuel combustion and other human activities. The year 2005 saw atmospheric carbon dioxide climb to its highest level in the last 500,000 years - raising concers about increased greenhouse forcing of Earth's climate. NASA Orbiting Carbon Observatory mission will address these concerns by collecting precise global measurements of carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere and revolutionizing our understanding of the global carbon cycle. Come learn how the Obirting Carbon Observatory will measure your carbon footprint.
Speaker :   Dr. Charles Miller
Deputy Principal Investigator, Orbiting Carbon Observatory
