An upcoming environmental public lecture at SDSU will examine a possible method of offsetting the effects of global warming and why it may or may not work.

Professor Lynn Russell of the University of California, San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography will present the lecture, entitled “Will Aerosol Particles Prevent Global Warming?”

Particles in the atmosphere play a key role in cloud formation, and clouds can potentially offset or accelerate global warming. Russell will discuss a particular geo-engineering-based method that will try to exploit aerosol-cloud interactions by augmenting natural “sea spray” as an effective, safe and time-buying cooling measure.

The free event will take place in Love Library, Room 430, on April 8 starting with a reception from 3:30 to 4 p.m. and a lecture and discussion from 4 to 5:30 p.m.

The lecture is presented by SDSU's Department of Mathematics & Statistics and the Environmental Sciences Program.
