21st Annual W.S. Jardetzky Lecture: Laurentide Ice Sheets, the Emergence of the Isthmus of Panama, and the Great American Biotic Interchange: A Red Herring Inserted Between Climatic Cause and Biological Effect
May 06, 2016 from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm EDT
Columbia University, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Monell Building Auditorium

The Earth Institute's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory presents the 2016 W. S. Jardetzky Lecture "Laurentide Ice Sheets, the Emergence of the Isthmus of Panamá, and the Great American Biotic Interchange: A Red Herring Inserted Between Climatic Cause and Biological Effect" with Peter Molnar, Professor of Geological Sciences, University of Colorado, Boulder.

Abstract: Two events seemed to have occurred virtually simultaneously at ~2.5 million years ago (Ma): the first big ice sheet, since 300 Ma, covered Canada, and the Great American Biotic Interchange began with the crossing of largely large mammals through the Isthmus of Panamá, from North to South America and vice versa.  An emergent isthmus seems required for such animals to change hemispheres.  A popular myth, pervading textbooks and Wikipedia, holds that the isthmus emerged near ~2.5 Ma or perhaps slightly earlier, and that by doing so, it altered Atlantic Circulation sufficiently to enable ice sheets grow on Canada.  I contend that the Great American Biotic Interchange, which seems to consist of four (or more) separate events, occurred when large Laurentide ice sheets pushed the ITCZ southward so as to cool and aridify eastern Panamá.  Most of the animals involved in the Great American Biotic Interchange seem to have been savannah-dwellers; not only do they refrain from passing through eastern Panamá today, but (I presume that) they also would have avoided its swamps, jungles, snakes, crocodiles, mosquitoes, and other nasty predators before savannah-like environments drew them in and facilitated safe passage.  Although at times shallow connections between the Caribbean and the Pacific may have confined terrestrial fauna to one of the Americas, recent geologic evidence shows that the principal gateway, the “Bolívar Trough” in eastern Panamá, had emerged by ~15 Ma.  Moreover, for the passage of Pacific waters to have affected Atlantic Ocean circulation before ~2.5 Ma, ancestors of salamanders, frogs, snakes, fish, etc., who currently confine themselves to fresh water but passed through Panamá before ~5-20 Ma, must have been extraordinary swimmers to beat the required Pacific to Caribbean current.  Although herrings do swim, red ones, like a recent emergence of the Isthmus of Panamá, live longest out of water, before rotting away in full view.

2016 Energy Day: Theme Sustainable and Affordable Energy Challenge for the World
May 08, 2016 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm EDT
Davis Auditorium (4th floor) Morris Shapiro Building 530 West 120th Street NY NY 10027

The last few years have brought global energy issues to the fore. At the recently concluded COP21 in 2015 and signed April 22nd 2016, it became clear that both emerging and developed countries will need to accelerate deployments of renewable energy. This puts many developing countries in a technologically and financially challenging position. Not surprisingly they are keen to accelerate deployment of carbon-neutral technologies such as: wind, solar, nuclear, CCS, biofuels or some combination- while also addressing issues of energy security, access and growth in an affordable fashion. India is a classic case, with a goal to deploy 160 GW of solar and wind by 2020, when last year’s average power consumption was 120GW. At the same time 20% of Indians have no electricity access. We will also learn of the challenges and opportunities of rethinking the power system, in a state like New York that is leading the way through the REV initiative.

Colloquium Series: Jeannette Wing
Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Research

TITLE: Crashing Drones and Hijacked Cameras: CyberTrust Meets CyberPhysical

ABSTRACT: Cyber-physical systems are engineered systems that require tight conjoining of and coordination between the computational (discrete) and the physical (continuous).   Cyber-physical systems are rapidly penetrating every aspect of our lives, with potential impact on sectors critical to national security and competitiveness, including aerospace, automotive, chemical production, civil infrastructure, energy, finance, healthcare, manufacturing, materials, and transportation.  As these systems fulfill the promise of the Internet of Things, smart cities, household robots, and personalized medicine, we need to ensure they are trustworthy: reliable, secure, and privacy-preserving.  This talk will look at cyber-physical systems from the lens of trustworthy computing.  Throughout my talk, I will raise research challenges for how to make cyber-physical systems trustworthy, with a special emphasis on privacy.


BIOGRAPHY:
Jeannette M. Wing is Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Research. She is Adjunct Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon where she twice served as the Head of the Computer Science Department. From 2007-2010 she was the Assistant Director of the Computer and Information Science and Engineering Directorate at the National Science Foundation.  She received her S.B., S.M., and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science, all from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Professor Wing's general research interests are in the areas of trustworthy computing, specification and verification, concurrent and distributed systems, programming languages, and software engineering. Her current research is on the foundations of security and privacy. She is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), and the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE).

America's Water: Infrastructure in Peril - What to Do, How to Fix It, and How to Finance It
May 11, 2016 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am EDT
Online

The Earth Institute's Columbia Water Center, Circle of Blue, and American Public Media present: "America's Water: Infrastructure in Peril - What to Do, How to Fix It, and How to Finance It."

Join American Public Media Marketplace’s David Brancaccio, national experts, and journalists for the first in a timely H2O Catalyst series of interactive town hall broadcasts that explores the nation’s imperiled water systems.

Bring your voice and participate with leaders in finance, water infrastructure, and policy in a virtual, interactive town hall to learn the latest news, information, and share ideas about how the nation can respond to its grand water infrastructure challenge.

A Defining Moment

America built its water systems to last. But they will not last forever. Communities throughout the country face an era of replacement, repair, and reinvestment.

The stakes are high.

Leaky pipes waste trillions of gallons per year. Droughts and floods inflict deep financial wounds. Lead contamination in Flint, Michigan, and countless other cities shows the risks to public health and economic well-being because of outdated infrastructure.

Beginning May 11 and running through fall 2016, Circle of Blue, American Public Media, and Columbia University — and a global audience — will dig deep and explore the state of the nation's water infrastructure. From what happens when pipes and policies fail to the opportunities for innovative finance, policy, and technology.

Networking/ LinkedIn Workshop
May 12, 2016 from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm EDT
Hammer 410

Networking is critical for any professional, and is the route by which the vast majority of jobs are obtained. Networking may seem uncomfortable and people may feel that merit alone should win them a future position. Others may feel that networking is something to do only when one is on the job market. This workshop, led by Rory Flinn, the Director of the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, will address why networking is critical, go over ways of making networking more palatable, and discuss why networking should be done throughout one’s professional life. Beyond covering basic networking strategies, the workshop will extensively delve into how to utilize LinkedIN to explore careers and aide in building one’s professional network. In this hands on workshop, participants will be asked to work on their own LinkedIn profiles during the workshop and explore some of the tools discussed. Participants will need to bring their own laptops for this session. A professional looking headshot can make or break a LinkedIn in profile, and with this in mind the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs will be offering an opportunity for postdocs to have professional headshots taken on a date following the workshop. Attendance at the workshop will be a requirement to receive this opportunity. The workshop will be held on the Morningside, Medical, and Lamont campuses.

SEAS Colloquium in Climate Science (SCiCS)
May 12, 2016 from 2:45 pm to 3:45 pm EDT
Columbia University Morningside Heights S.W. Mudd, Room 214


Timothy Merlis

McGill University ('06 Applied Math, Columbia University)

"Temperature-dependent vs. temperature-independent anthropogenic tropical cyclone changes"

Abstract: Tropical cyclones are among the deadliest and costliest natural disasters, and future changes in tropical cyclone activity are expected in response to anthropogenic radiative forcing agents, such as carbon dioxide. I will present research that separates radiatively forced changes in tropical cyclones into those that are temperature-dependent and those that are temperature-independent, arising directly from the radiative forcing. This separation reveals differences between climate change forced by solar radiation and carbon dioxide in high-resolution climate simulations. These differences imply solar radiation manipulation geoengineering schemes cannot return the global number of tropical cyclones to that of an unperturbed climate. I will also revisit prominent observational examples where surface and atmospheric temperature have been invoked to interpret tropical cyclone development and maximum intensity.
 
Biography: Merlis is currently an Assistant Professor in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at McGill University. His research is focused on climate dynamics including tropical meteorology, climate sensitivity, the ocean-atmosphere general circulation, and the atmospheric hydrological cycle. He aims to expose the physical mechanisms underlying changes in both past and future climates.

Host: Aditi Sheshadri
