El Niño events are the largest causes of year-to-year climate variability on a global scale, bringing floods to some regions and droughts to others. Join Dr Michael Davey as he explains the phenomenon, explores the impacts, and describes how maths helps us understand how they occur and evolve.
Dr Michael Davey is a research scientist at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, with the atmosphere-ocean research group. He is also employed part-time by the Met Office, in the monthly-to-decadal variability and prediction group.
This event is free but admission is by ticket only: book tickets online.
This event forms part of the 2015 Cambridge Science Festival.
