Prehistoric mammals may illuminate global warming

Jaelyn Eberle, associate professor, Geological Sciences, and curator of vertebrate paleontology, CU Boulder, will present “Long Hot Nights in the Eocene Arctic — What they tell us about global temperature change” at 6:30 p.m. April 12 at Clyde’s, University Center first floor.

Eberle’s presentation is part of the UCCS Café Scientifique and is based on her research of prehistoric mammals which may suggest how modern mammals will react to global warming. Eberle will also present prehistoric artifacts collected during her research.

Café Scientifique lectures are free and open to the public. Attendees buy their own food and drinks. Organizer Tom Huber, professor, Department of Geography and Environmental Studies, anticipates the event will be popular and recommended early arrival.

The UCCS Department of Public Safety will provide free parking from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. April 12 in parking lots 3 and 4 located south of Centennial Hall and the University Center.

Funding for Café Scientifique is provided by the UCCS Auxiliary Services.
