A Zoom presentation arranged by the ICSF and Clintel held on 31 March 2021. Re-recorded on 2nd April due to disruptions by trolls who failed to prevent a very informative and insightful Zoom talk by Professor Lindzen.
Professor Emeritus Richard S Lindzen is a world‐renowned dynamical meteorologist with interests in the broad topics of climate, planetary waves, monsoon meteorology, planetary atmospheres and hydrodynamic instability. His research involved studies of the role of the tropics in mid‐latitude weather and global heat transport, the moisture budget and its role in global change, the origins of ice ages, seasonal effects in atmospheric transport, stratospheric waves, and the observational determination of climate sensitivity. He has published more than 200 scientific papers and books. From 1983, when he joined the faculty at MIT, until he retired in 2013, he was Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology. He has received numerous prestigious awards, including Phi Beta Kappa, Sigma Xi and is a Fellow of several US and international learned Societies
