The University of Iowa College of Engineering hosted the first in a series of four webinars focused on climate change.

The first webinar was held on Sept. 23, 2021, and featured Jerry Schnoor, UI professor of civil and environmental engineering, and Greg Carmichael, UI professor of chemical and biochemical engineering. The topic was unpacking the findings of a climate science report called AR6 from IPCC — Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

The series is intended to feature world-renowned scientists who will explain the latest scientific findings, discuss measures to mitigate the impacts of climate change, adaptation to the effects on extreme weather, and natural systems, and ideas on engineering infrastructure for resilience in the face of change.

The College of Engineering has created the webinar series in partnership with CGRER (Center for Global and Regional Environmental Research) and the Climate/Atmospheric Science and Engineering (CASE) Colloquium, which is led by CGRER and the Iowa Technology Institute
