Join the Geomatics Atlantic Conference Committee as we partner with the Licensed Professional Planner Association of Nova Scotia (LPPANS) for a Prenote presentation by world renowned atmospheric scientist Dr. Katharine Hayhoe who will discuss cross-sectoral approaches to dealing with climate change.
Dr. Katharine Hayhoe is a climate scientist, a professor in the Department of Political Science and the Director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University.
She began her career with a B.Sc. in physics and astronomy from the University of Toronto, and her research focuses on high-resolution climate projections to evaluate the future impacts of climate change on human society and the natural environment.
After participating in a climate change assessment for the Great Lakes, she recognized the need for high-resolution climate projections to integrate into impact studies in areas ranging from ecosystems to energy. Therefore for her Ph.D., she refocused her research to survey and compare a broad range of the statistical down scaling methods often used to generate these projections: research.
“I don’t accept global warming on faith: I crunch the data, I analyze the models, I help engineers and city managers and ecologists quantify the impacts.” Katharine Hayhoe
She has published over 125 peer-reviewed articles and served as lead author on key reports for the U.S. Global Change Research Program and the National Academy of Sciences.
