‘’Science Rendez-vous’’ on climate change (04/26/2016) [fr]
Prof. Christelle Not, assistant professor at the Department of Earth Sciences at Hong Kong University - HKU, will lead the next "Science Rendez-vous" on Tuesday 26th April 2016 on climate change. The event is organized by the Scientific Department of the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macau, from 7.30pm to 9pm at the restaurant " Chez Patrick Deli " in BRIM28.
Last year, 2015, was the warmest year since the first weather records began in 1880. Statistics show that temperatures will rise.
Faced with this alarming prospect, at the end of the COP 21 in December 2015, 195 countries have adopted an agreement to reduce their CO2 emissions by 2020 in 2016.
Why are these countries concerned about their emissions of greenhouse gases? What are the effects of greenhouse gases? Are they a real threat to the health of ecosystems? Here are some questions which we will attempt to answer in this scientific meeting on 26 April.
Prof.. Christelle Not is an assistant professor in the Earth Sciences Department of Hong Kong University. Dr. Not’s research focuses on the reconstruction of climatic and environmental conditions through sediment geochemistry and fossils such as foraminifera, ostracods and corals. One of her main interests is to reconstruct the climatic condition of the Arctic Ocean where she has had the opportunity to spend three months in a scientific research vessel. During the past 10 years she has worked in Canada, Monaco, Japan and Germany before Hong Kong.
Come join the discussion (in English) on climate change which will be animated by Prof. Christelle Not!

About "Science Rendez-vous":
Dedicated to a large audience, these monthly talks aim at taking part in the dissemination of scientific culture in Hong Kong. Through informal talks and exchanges with the audience, renowned experts from France or Hong Kong popularize a large variety of scientific topics.
The « Science Rendez-Vous » stays close from topical issues and keeps an eye on ground-breaking discoveries made by French or local teams as well as teams working in cooperation between the two countries.
The talks are be given in English in the following format: 30-minute speech usually without any PowerPoint presentation followed by a Q&A session fostering interaction between the speaker and the audience.
By partnering with the restaurant « Chez Patrick Deli » who will host these « Science Rendez-Vous » at its Deli restaurant Brim 28, we hope to turn these learning moment into convivial evenings while having the possibility to enjoy the French gastronomy at the same time (cheese and cold cuts platters with a glass of wine, for instance).
