Event Description:
IS OUR CLIMATE CHANGING?
 
Dr. Baishali Ray, 1 Session, Tuesday, August 14, 10:10 am - 12:10 pm
 
The earth's climate has constantly been changing over geological time.  However, the current period of warming is occurring more rapidly than many past events. Scientists are concerned that the natural fluctuation, or variability, is being overtaken by a rapid human-induced activity that has serious implications for the stability of the planet's climate.
 
Scientists believe that humans are adding to the natural greenhouse effect thereby trapping more energy and increasing the temperature of the planet. This is commonly referred to as global warming or climate change.
We will discuss the natural causes of climate change and human induced effect and what can be done if at all to protect our planet.
                                   
After graduating with an honors degree in physics from the University of Calcutta in India, Dr. Ray received her M.S. in information technology from Clarkson University in New York. Dr. Ray then moved on to Ole Miss where she received her Ph.D. in physics with a specialization in atmospheric physics. Dr. Ray was a recipient of the dissertation fellowship award from the University of Mississippi for the completion of her Ph.D. She has published papers in various scientific journals and presented her research several times at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT). Dr. Ray is excited about teaching physics and physical geography at Young Harris College to science and non-science majors.
