This event has passed and is archived.

Dan Cayan

If greenhouse gas emissions continue at their current pace, sea level along the West Coast of the United States could rise by up to four or five feet by 2100. This is among the findings presented in a recent report from the National Research Council. In this lecture, climate researcher Dan Cayan will discuss the report findings with an emphasis on impacts in Southern California.

Cayan is a research meteorologist with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, and a researcher with the U.S. Geological Survey. He heads the California Nevada Applications Program and the California Climate Change Center.
