UEA Inaugural lecture - Probing past climates using trees and thermometers (13 March)

Understanding natural climate variability is key when addressing the important questions our global society faces.

You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy this open public lecture, and there will be a chance to meet the speaker at a free drinks reception after the talk.
