Climos chief science officer to speak at NJIT about greenhouse gases

Margaret Leinen, PhD, chief science officer and vice president of Climos, will discuss at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) next week the buildup of atmospheric greenhouse gases over just two centuries. Leinen believes that this change has impacted the Earths climate and ecosystems, and that changes cannot be modeled without including fossil-fuel emissions. Leinens talk will also examine the essential role of geoscience in understanding how climate processes will respond to a continuing increase in greenhouse gases and the rate at which change will occur.

The talk will take place Feb. 12, 2007, in NJITs Campus Center Ballroom from 11:30 a.m. -1 p.m. The public is invited in addition to students, faculty and staff at NJIT, Essex County College, Rutgers-Newark, the University of Medicine and Dentistry, and Sigma Xi. Light refreshments will be served: For information, see http://tsf.njit.edu.

As recorded in geologic deposits, the complex elements of the Earth system that determine climate and ecology have changed profoundly over many millions of years. However, while such changes have occurred in a more distant past, climate has been relatively stable during the last 6000 years. This stability can no longer be taken for granted and there is growing awareness worldwide that the near future will bring major environmental changes of great significance for nations, social institutions and individuals.

Leinen holds a PhD in oceanography from the University of Rhode Island. Prior to her recent appointment at Climos, Leinen was the assistant director for geosciences at the National Science Foundation, where she led the transition of the ocean drilling program to the integrated ocean drilling program, and oversaw the development of the ocean observatories initiative and advanced modular incoherent scatter radar. Leinen has also served at University of Rhode Island (URI) as dean of the
