BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES AND SCIENCES PROGRAM AT SKIDMORE COLLEGE, SUSTAINABLE SARATOGA, AND SPAC
Science on Tap is a monthly opportunity for conversation, debate and interaction among scientists and the public while enjoying a fresh pint (available for purchase) at a local pub or brewery.
On April 30th, please join Dr. Mathias Vuille, professor in the Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences at the University at Albany, as he discusses how climate change affects mountain environments globally in a variety of ways. This presentation will provide evidence for rapid transformations occurring today in mountains around the world. A special emphasis will be on the tropical Andes in South America, where glacier retreat has already led to disputes over access and allocation of water resources, increased threats from natural hazards, damaged ecosystem integrity, and altered tourism and cultural belief systems of indigenous populations.
As always, Science on Tap is free and open to the public. 21 and under are welcome, and seating is first come first serve.

About the Speaker
Dr. Vuille’s research focuses on past, present and future climate change in the tropics with a particular emphasis on reconstructing historical changes in the South American monsoon and understanding the effects of climate change on glacier mass balance and water resources in the tropical Andes.
