Climate Geoengineering and International Consensus

Professor Kate Ricke

There is a growing need to account for uncertainty and heterogeneity in predicting the effects of climate change and in determining the best ways to address them. This lecture will describe current research on these issues, including topics ranging from regional climate effects to the implications of solar geoengineering to international climate agreements. It will also assess the impact of ocean acidification on coral reefs and the warming effect from emissions of carbon dioxide.

Instructor: Kate Ricke is an assistant professor at UC San Diego’s School of Global Policy and Strategy and holds a joint appointment with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. She is a climate-change scientist who integrates tools from the physical and social sciences to analyze climate-policy problems. She earned a BS in Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a PhD in Engineering and Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University.
