Please join us for New Bedford Science Café, Tues., 4/4, from 6–8 p.m., at The Last Round Bar & Grille, 908 Purchase St., New Bedford. Open to everyone. Free, save for the beer!
Our guest will be Brown University paleoceanographer Timothy Herbert, who fills the shoes of both marine geologist and oceanographer. Tim will discuss “Drilling into the Past for Clues about Our Climate Future.”
Tim and a student—participants on Expedition 397 of the Int’l Ocean Discovery Program—recently spent 59 days off Portugal’s coast recovering mud cores from the seafloor that date back 3-5 million years to when Earth was much warmer and Greenland was green. These sediments, filled with fossils, worm burrows, minerals, and even pollen, “can help us understand how warm climates work and plan for the impact of climate change,” notes Tim, Brown’s Doherty Professor of Oceanography.
