An Archaeological Perspective on Humans and Climate Change

4/12/2017; 51 minutes

How are modern day humans adapting to climate change? To find the answer, archaeologists are studying how human societies have responded to environmental changes in the past. Isabel Rivera-Collazo focuses on understanding human resilience and adaptation to past environmental change as a lens through which we can view the future. Finding answers involves diverse disciplines, including archeology, anthropology, geomorphology, ecosystem dynamics and climate science. Join us to learn how her work at Scripps Oceanography and in UC San Diegos Department of Archeology are changing the way we view climate change and its impacts on society. (#31732)
