Event Description

Via Zoom - Zoom/Video links will be communicated with members of the Atmospheric & Oceanic Sciences Program, the Geosciences Department, and GFDL, and are available to members of the University and to the public upon request. Contact [email protected].

Princeton University experts in climate and disease dynamics will address potential climate drivers of the coronavirus pandemic in the online round-table discussion “Understanding Epidemics: Disease Dynamics and Environmental Modulation” at 4 p.m. Monday, April 6. The speakers will discuss the history and future of the current coronavirus pandemic against the backdrop of research on epidemic dynamics and control of acute immunizing infections, and the impact of climatic and other seasonal drivers of transmission.
