About the Event
On January 14th, UCLA Professor Ai Mosleh will speak about risk assessment, a key to life prediction in engineering systems of all kinds. The talk will offer an overview of the discipline and two recent applications: Wildfire risk management of California electric power network, and COVID-19 risk-informed mitigation decision support.
On January 28th, Hugh Wright will speak on An Ice Core Climate Model: Where we Were, Are and Will Be and Actionable Strategies. He will present a geophysical model that relates transient earth temperatures to the varying CO2 forcing function. He will illustrate the technique with two future scenarios, 1) net zero by 2050 then stable forever, and 2) a successive, massively aggressive negative emissions strategy after 2050.
