Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor Gavin Foster, Professor Jim Zachos, Professor Dan Lunt, Professor Richard Alley ForMem RS and Professor Wally Broecker ForMemRS.
Earth’s history is peppered with rapid and extreme global warming events collectively known as hyperthermals. Although none were as rapid as human-induced climate change, most are associated with major extinction events and were invariably caused by the injection of huge volumes of carbon into the ancient atmosphere. In this meeting we explore what we can learn about our possible future from these dramatic ancient events.
The schedule of talks and speaker biographies will be available shortly. A draft programme is available to download.
Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place. Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions A.
