This term, CSaP's inaugural Visiting Research Fellow Professor Charlie F Kennel will deliver a series of seminars on adaptation to climate change, hosted by Christ's College Cambridge.

Professor Kennel is Vice-Chancellor and Director emeritus at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego, and a Distinguished Visiting Fellow at Christ’s College. He will be spending the next three months as a Visiting Research Fellow at the Centre for Science and Policy.

In his first seminar, Professor Kennel will give a brief history of development of climate research - the relationship between atmospheric abundance of CO2 and global temperature over time, and fundamental truths about the long-term future.

Information on other seminars in this series can be found here.
