The Mattapoisett Woman’s Club will hold its next monthly luncheon on February 20 at 12:00 noon at Reynard Hall in Mattapoisett Congregational Church, 27 Church Street, Mattapoisett. Our guest speaker is renowned Jennifer Francis PhD from the Institute of Marine and Coastal Services at Rutgers University. Dr. Jennifer Francis earned a B.S. in Meteorology from San Jose State University in 1988 and a PhD in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Washington in 1994. As a professor at Rutgers University since 1994, she taught courses in satellite remote sensing and climate-change issues, and also co-founded and co-directed the Rutgers Climate and Environmental Change Initiative. Presently, she is a Research Professor with the Rutgers Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences and studies Arctic climate change and Arctic-global climate linkages with approximately 40 peer-reviewed publications on these topics.
Dr. Francis first became interested in Arctic weather and climate after circumnavigating the world in a sailboat from 1980-1985, including Cape Horn and the Arctic. Her research focuses on the Arctic climate, which is changing faster than anywhere else on the planet. Are we poised to feel the weather-related backlash? Come listen to Dr. Francis and find out for yourselves.
