Where the Wind Blows

Tuesday May 20th, Room G23, Thoday Building, Deiniol Road, Bangor

“Where the Wind Blows” was a a double-headed Public Lecture on the history of our unpredictable weather and how it is influenced by conditions in the North Atlantic ocean.  The event was sponsored by ARAMACC and the Climate Change Consortium for Wales, and the talks were given by Professor Valerie Trouet and Professor James Scourse.

Valerie Trouet works and teaches at the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research, University of Arizona.  She has written influential papers on many aspects of the climate system, including the history of the North Atlantic Oscillation, and was a visiting teacher at the ARAMACC Summer School 1.

James Scourse is Professor of Marine Geology at School of Ocean Sciences, Bangor University and Director of C3W.  He is well known in the fields of glaciology and palaeoceanography, and is Principal Investigator on the ARAMACC project.

The two talks are now available to listen to on Panopto (you will need to download Silverlight to connect):
