Lynn Ingram: The West Without Water

Professor Lynn Ingram
The West Without Water

Perhaps none of us can imagine the West without water, but Gov. Jerry Brown declared that our state is in a drought emergency and the issue is becoming hard to ignore. To address this critical issue, we invited Professor Lynn Ingram of UC Berkeley to speak about her book The West Without Water: What Past Floods, Droughts, and other Climactic Clues Tell Us About Tomorrow. Dr. Ingram will be joined by Tim Bradley, Professor, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at UC Irvine.

Professor of Earth and Planetary Science at UC Berkeley, Dr. Ingram earned her Ph.D. at Stanford University. An expert on paleoclimatology, Ingram oversees the Laboratory for Environmental and Sedimentary Isotope Geochemistry (LESIG) at UC Berkeley. “The goal of my research is to assess how climates and environments have changed over the past several thousand years. These environments include estuaries, lakes, coasts, and coral reefs.” Dr. Ingram studies the history of climate change in California using sediment cores from lakes and estuaries, including San Francisco Bay.
