Science Cafe at Borderlands Brewing Co. – ‘More than a Thermometer, Bristlecone Pine as a Historian’

February 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Event Navigation

Presenter: Will Tintor, PhD Student, School of Geography and Development and the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research

About the talk:We can understand past climates, droughts and floods in the Rio Grande and Colorado Rivers through the research of tree-ring reconstruction from the Southern Rocky Mountain region. This research can help us plan for future climate changes by constructing records of past temperature variability. We will discuss research, focused on the Rocky Mountain bristlecone pine, the oldest tree species found in this region, and its impact on producing temperature and climate records from the past several millennia.

About Science Cafes: Science Cafes, presented by the University of Arizona College of Science, bring the community together with University of Arizona scientists and graduate students in a casual setting. You’ll learn about the latest research being conducted, get to know the faces behind the science, and have opportunities to ask questions and deepen your understanding. We have five separate cafe series at five different locations around Tucson, each with their own themes for fascinating science discussions.
