Past Seminars & Lectures

Richard Alley Condon Lecture Posted on November 9, 2011
Richard Alley, a geologist, glaciologist, and climate change
scientist will present the 2011 Thomas Condon Lecture on Wednesday, Nov.
9, at Oregon State University. The lecture, which is free and open to
the public, is designed for a non-specialist audience. It is titled “Get
Rich and Save the World, or Else: Challenges and Opportunities in a
Warming World.”The presentation will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Austin
Auditorium of the LaSells Stewart Center on the OSU campus. Named after a
pioneer of Oregon geology, the Condon Lecture helps to interpret
significant scientific research for non-scientists. Alley is the Evan
Pugh Professor of Geosciences and associate of the Earth and
Environmental Systems Institute at The Pennsylvania State University. A
widely recognized and honored scientist, he studies climate records,
flow behavior, and sedimentary deposits of large ice sheets to help
predict future changes in climate and sea level. Alley has conducted 14
field expeditions to Antarctica, Greenland and Alaska. Alley will also
give a more technical presentation in the George Moore Lecture, “Slip
Sliding Away: Ice-sheet Discoveries and Sea-level Rise,” on Thursday,
Nov. 10, at 4 p.m. in Gilfillan Auditorium. Alley was the presenter for
the PBS television special on climate and energy, Earth: The Operators’
Manual, and author of the book. His popular account of climate change
and ice cores,The Two-Mile Time Machine, was Phi Beta The lecture is
sponsored by the OSU Department of Geosciences and College of Oceanic
and Atmospheric Sciences. More information is available online
Update: Here are the presentation slides: part1, part2, part3, part4.
