Thursday, April 19th from 2-3 PM Eastern: "Ask Me Anything: Tipping Points and Planet Earth" Online Q&A with Dr. Mary Lou Zeeman
What do lakes, fisheries, coral reefs, moods, kayaks, social media posts, the spread of disease, and the Earth's energy balance all have in common? Tipping points: when a system changes abruptly from one alternative steady state to another. How can mathematical modeling help support decision making in the face of these alternative possibilities? What makes for resilience? What causes change?
Join mathematician Dr. Mary Lou Zeeman (Bowdoin College) with your questions about these exciting and accessible dynamics, which can inform your own choices and those of our global society. She will be joined by environmental scientist Dr. Ross Lieblappen (Vermont Technical College).
