Hamptons Observatory, and co-host Suffolk County Community College, are honored to present a free, virtual lecture by multi-disciplinary scientist, explorer, and the University of Maine’s Institute for Climate Change Director, Prof. Paul Andrew Mayewski.

“Journey Into Climate” covers over five decades of expeditions filled with adventure, exploration, discovery, and contributions to the understanding of climate change. The story is told through the personal experiences of the internationally acclaimed glaciologist, climate scientist, and polar explorer, Paul Andrew Mayewski. Prof. Mayewski and his teams have traveled throughout Antarctica, the Himalayas, Greenland, the Andes, and the Southern Ocean in search of answers to how and why
climate changes. By living and working in some of earth’s most remote places, their journey not only documents the role played by past changes but sheds light on the transition from a “gradualist” to a fast-changing physical and chemical climate system in which human activity goes from
having a relatively minor to a remarkably consequential impact. The lessons learned are now clear: we have entered the age of climate decision where our actions will define the course of civilization and
the health of our planet.

Prof. Paul Andrew Mayewski is an internationally acclaimed glaciologist, climate scientist, polar explorer and Director of the Climate Change Institute at the University of Maine, where he is also a Distinguished Professor in the Schools of Earth Sciences, Marine Sciences, Policy and International Affairs, as well as in the Business and Law Schools. He has led more than 60 expeditions to the remotest polar and the high elevations of the planet resulting in transformative contributions to
climate science. In 2019, he led the placement of the highest automatic weather station on Mt. Everest. Prof. Mayewski has received several prestigious international awards, and has made numerous scientific discoveries. He has made hundreds of media appearances including several on the CBS show, “60 Minutes,” and the Emmy Award-Winning documentary series, “Years of Living Dangerously.” Prof. Mayewski has authored more than 500 scientific articles and has published two popular books: “The Ice Chronicles” and “Journey into Climate.”

Hamptons Observatory extends its deepest thanks to Prof. Mayewski for generously taking the time to share his expertise, to co-host Suffolk County Community College and Carin Eve Cole for their kind collaboration.
