About the Speaker
Due to unforseen circumstances the talk by Eva Meidl originally scheduled for this night has been postponed until a later date.
Brief Abstract of the Talk
While the climate change debate is alive and well-known, little publicity is given to the origin of the knowledge about its natural cyclical nature that acts as a baseline against which to compare the modern trends. The lecture will go back to the origins of the concept of cyclicity, and review the basis for the data that support the idea and how patterns have changed with time. The origins are in microfossils, of course: guess which ones!
