Wednesday, February 01, 2012
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Large Conference Room, Institute of the Environment and Sustainability (La Kretz Hall 3rd Floor)
UCLA is a co-host of the Southwest Regional Climate Science Center and, as such, has several contributors to the Southwestern Regional Assessment. This is a great opportunity to learn more about federal climate change research and assessment work.
Fred Lipschultz is a Senior Scientist for the National Climate Assessment, coordinating the regional assessments among other roles. He is on a mobility assignment from the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences, where he has been a faculty member since 1989. Prior to the NCA, Fred spent 2.5 years at NASA headquarters working as Program Scientist for the Ocean Biology and Biogeochemistry Program in the Earth Sciences Division. Before that, he served 4 years at NSF as Program Officer in the Chemical Oceanography Program in the Geosciences Directorate. During his government service, he has participated in several working groups of the USGCRP, and was the vice-chair of the JSOST interagency working group on Ocean Acidification. Fred’s research career focused on the biogeochemistry of the marine nitrogen cycle in various ecosystems including Bermuda’s coral reefs, the Sargasso Sea, and the Eastern Tropical Pacific. He earned his Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from Harvard University, and his Master’s degree in Botany from the University of Maryland.
