The Priestley International Centre for Climate also runs a monthly interdisciplinary lunchtime seminar series. See Climate Exchange Seminar Series

Abstract “Energy for use in households of low-income populations is a relatively small fraction of global energy use. However, the solid-fuel combustion providing that energy produces a large fraction of primary aerosol globally, and a high health burden, especially from indoor smoke. Energy transitions among these vulnerable populations are important for future air quality, health,…
A joint Priestley / Civil Engineering seminar Abstract Scientific research into climate change pursues a better understanding of our complex earth systems leading to a reduction in the uncertainty regarding future climate and, in theory, more informed adaptation decisions and investment. So what is the value of this improved learning in an actual adaptation investment decision?…
The Priestley International Centre for Climate invites you to this half day symposium on planetary atmospheres. The symposium will explore whole atmosphere chemistry, upper atmosphere composition, space weather and the link to climate change. Please register to attend here. The programme includes talks by University of Leeds Academic Fellows, Dr Catherine Walsh, UAF in Protoplanetary disks and…

SRI External Seminar Abstract Without a clear definition on its sovereign status, the Antarctic region has been governed by the Antarctic Treaty system for the last sixty years. Focusing on scientific research and environment protection, the Treaty system has been able to maintain inside and outside legitimacy. However, commercial activities such as fishing and tourism…
Abstract The Greenland Ice Sheet is expected to contribute increasingly to global sea level rise by the end of this century, and potentially several meters in this millennium, but still with considerable uncertainty. The rate and amount of Greenland melt will impact regional sea levels. The Last Interglacial (~129,000 to 116,000 years ago) is recognized…
ABSTRACT Changes in climate mean that cities need to adopt to future prevailing climate conditions if significant increase in building cooling loads are to be avoided in the future. A preservation of the inner-city micro¬climate can also be seen as a base for high amenity values in future cities.  This talk will give an introduction…
