Presenter: Emma ReedPh.D. Student, Department of Geosciences, University of Arizona

About this Cafe: Tropical Pacific islands may seem like remote paradises, but they are at the forefront of climate change: they face rising   seas, shifting patterns of drought, and coral reef death. Corals are the ocean’s history books, forming layers that record  changes in climate as they grow. These corals tell stories about the past that can teach us about future climate—not only  in the tropical Pacific, but here in Tucson as well.

About Science Cafes: Science Cafes, presented by the UA College of Science, bring the community together with UA 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.
