Independent Study on Potential Environmental Effects of Nuclear War
September 19 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm EDT
Join the National Academies September 19, 2023 for a public meeting of the study on the potential environmental impacts of nuclear war. During this meeting the committee will hear about climate modeling work from the DOE National Labs.
Anyone interested is welcome to watch a livestream of the meeting on the event webpage.
Advances in Earth system modeling capabilities offer an opportunity to improve understanding of the integrated environmental impacts from nuclear exchange scenarios with greater accuracy. A committee for the Independent Study on Potential Environmental Effects of Nuclear War will review the potential environmental effects and socio-economic consequences that could unfold following nuclear wars, and explore scenarios ranging from small-scale to large-scale exchanges between major powers.
