Climate and Energy Summer Series

Every Tuesday in July 2020 we arranged for a specialized virtual visit for prospective students interested in thinking about climate change as a substantive part of their college experience. These events were hosted by the Dartmouth College Office of Admissions in partnership with Dartmouth's Irving Institute for Energy and Society. Each session features different Dartmouth faculty members and current students who will discuss their ongoing work around climate and energy.

Studying Climate Science at Dartmouth

What impacts will climate change have on floods, heat waves, disease, food production, and sea level?  Can we solve the climate crisis? We'll hear from Dartmouth professors Jonathan Winter (Geography) and Erich Osterberg (Earth Sciences) and recent alum Mariana Webb '19 about how Dartmouth faculty and students are addressing these and other pressing questions in the classroom and through innovative research around the world.
