VIRTUAL MUSEUM EXHIBIT
Uncertainties abound in the study of global warming, but one thing is certain: the environment for climate research is extremely favorable at the University of Michigan.
Scientists in a broad range of areas including atmospheric science, ecology, geochemistry and geophysics are applying their expertise to learn, for example, how warming trends are affecting Michigan wildlife, how today's climate change compares with changes in the past, and how global warming and climate variability contribute to the spread and burden of disease.
A recent exhibit at the U-M Exhibit Museum of Natural History highlighted the work of 10 U-M researchers whose work relates to climate change.
