The institute issues electronic certificates to all registered students nominated by their respective schools who attend the conference.

“Schools can contact the Associate Dean, Academic Outreach and New Initiatives, IIT Delhi ([email protected]; [email protected]) to nominate their students for the SciTech Spins lecture series,” it said. -he adds.

“In this lecture, I will talk about how to reconstruct past climate using the chemistry of natural materials like lake and ocean sediments, which store information about past rainfall and temperature variability,” Professor Yama said. Dixit, Atmospheric Science Center, IIT Delhi.

“The earth is warming at an unprecedented rate, and it is unclear how various climatic processes such as monsoon rains will change in response to this warming. In the past, the Earth has experienced warmer and colder periods than today. The past history of the Earth’s climate can help us better understand future changes in climate processes in the projected warming,” the institute statement read.

The speaker will address questions such as “Precipitation and elemental isotopes: how are they related?” Would you believe that the Thar Desert in northwest India was once a densely populated region? How to use the ocean bed as an archive of past climate changes? How are “natural climate experiences” recorded in lakes and oceans? Could climate change have caused the collapse of ancient civilizations? How close are we to climate catastrophe on this warming Earth?
