Klaus Keller: Deep Uncertainty of Climate Sensitivity Estimates: Sources & Implications

Klaus Keller is an associate professor in the Department of Geosciences at Penn State University and an adjunct professor in the Department of Engineering and Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University. His research group at Penn State addresses two interrelated questions.  First, how can we mechanistically understand past and potential future changes in the climate system?  Second, how can we use this information to design scientifically sound, economically efficient, and ethically defensible climate risk-management strategies?  We analyze these questions by mission-oriented basic research covering a wide range of disciplines such as Earth system science, oceanography, biogeochemistry, economics, and ethics.
