On Monday evening, March 4, Climate scientist Emily Shuckburgh, from the British Antarctic Survey, delivers the second in an international series of MPE2013 Simons Public Lectures at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco at 7:30 pm.  As the leader of the Open Oceans research group, her research focuses on understanding the role of the polar oceans in the global climate system. She will explain how the tools of science are being applied to the challenge of understanding the climate, what uncertainties we face, and what to do about those uncertainties.  This Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013 event is sponsored by the Simons Foundation.  For tickets and more information, please see www.msri.org/simonslecture
