Global Climate Change and Water Resources

On Thursday, April 23rd, the Hebrew University community gathered virtually to hear from Dr. Adi Torfstein, an Associate Professor at the Institute of Earth Science at the Hebrew University, and at the Interuniversity Institute for Marine Sciences of Eilat. Dr. Torfstein shared his research, which reconstructs past climate changes and the mechanisms driving them to better understand current and future global climate change. Using field observations together with chemical analysis, Dr. Torfstein and his team are able to understand the past and apply it to evaluating potential future climate change trends.
