Past and Future Climate on Maunakea

Location: Room # 108

A Maunakea Speaker Series presentation by Dr. Steven Businger,Professor and Chair of the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. Dr. Businger will discuss the climate of Maunakea—past, present, and future—including historic climate observations and simulations of future weather. Using output from a Global Climate Model, he will share high-resolution "Weather Research Forecasting" simulations for the central Pacific in order to predict future weather and climate variability of the alpine and subalpine zones on Hawaiʻi Island. This research has enabled better understanding of the influence that Hawaiʻi's high mountains are likely to have on future weather, while providing direction for biologists, entomologists, and astronomers in evaluating the impacts of climate change on the high-altitude ecology of Maunakea and other high mountains in Hawaiʻi. Dr. Businger will also share thoughts on how we might mitigate and plan for a warming climate to come. The Maunakea Speaker Series is free and open to the public. On-campus parking is
open and available without charge after 4:00 pm.
