Briefing: Glacier Analysis & Climate Change’s Effects on Coastal Communities

Wednesday, February 27th, 2:00-3:00pm

1629 Longworth House Office Building

Dear Colleague,

We invite your staff to a briefing with Professor Erich Osterberg held Wednesday, February 27th, 1629 LHOB.

The briefing will be an opportunity to discuss how the analysis of glaciers informs our understanding of climate change’s effect on coastal communities. Professor Osterberg’s field research with ice cores clarifies sea-level rise and the changing number and intensity of extreme storms.

Snacks & Refreshments will be provided.


Erich Osterberg is a Professor of Earth Sciences at Dartmouth College

Professor Osterberg’s research has been featured in the Journal of Geophysical Research, Proceedings of the National Academies of Sciences, Nature Scientific Reports, Journal of Hydrometeorology, and Journal of Glaciology, amongst others.

His research focuses on understanding how and why our climate has changed, with particular focus on melting glaciers and changes in extreme storms. His work encompasses creating long (50-50,000 years) records of climate change and air pollution by analyzing chemical markers preserved in glacier ice cores and statistically analyzing climate data to distinguish natural cycles from human-driven climate changes.

For questions, please contact Dan Lipkowitz in my office at Dan.Lipkowitz@mail.house.gov  

I hope to see you there.
