“Where the Water Walks”

There will be a talk given by John Delay (PhD, Geography) on Wednesday, October 11, from 1:30-2:30 PM. It will take place in the Library.

The title is John will be sharing descriptions and videos of his work in studying the hydrologic cycle in Hawaiʻi and addressing implications of climate change for the islands.

This talk is part of the campus focus on water topics this year, and also a reflection of the fact October 9-15 is ‘Global Climate Change Week’. There will be some light refreshments.

*Please* come and encourage your students to come, perhaps even offer extra credit options for attendance and learning about what is presented. Regardless of what you teach, these are issues that impact, and are of urgent concern to, our students.
