With 2023 on pace to become one of the warmest years on record, the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine, Atmospheric, and Earth Science is relaunching its Climate Café Series! Each Climate Café is designed to be an informative, casual gathering that encourages conversations focused on groundbreaking climate science.


Program: “Searing, sweltering, stifling: How record-high temperatures and a marine heat wave baked South Florida this summer.”

Jenny StaletovichThe discussions will highlight related research underway at the Rosenstiel School so that ideally, the innovations can be applied to help our community adapt in a changing climate.

Moderated by Jenny Staletovich, environment reporter for WLRN, the NPR affiliate in Miami, each Climate Café will feature Rosenstiel School and collaborating scientists, graduate students, and local stakeholders that will explain different aspects of climate science, the local impact as well as the challenges facing South Florida.

Learn more about how our research activities can help inform policy, while we train the next generation of climate scientists.
