Worth knowing at Ultuna November 28

Published: 21 November 2019

On Thursday, November 28, Professor Kevin Bishop reports on The Water Cycle Diagram in the popular science series Worth knowing. The lecture will be held at the library at Ultuna starting at 12.15.

The Water Cycle Diagram: An icon dangerously out of date for the Anthropocene is the full title.

Water cycle diagrams are the icons of hydrological sciences, but they provide a misleading picture. Leaving humans out contributes to a basic lack of awareness of how we relate to water, and a false sense of security about future availability of the essential resource.

The first 20 are offered a vegetarian simpler soup lunch.

The lecture is held in English.
