Join the Waterloo Climate Institute and the Faculty of Mathematics for a guest lecture on the intricacies of how nitrogen cycling is represented within Earth System Models, which are used to project climate change. Sian Kou-Giesbrecht from the University of Dalhousie will explore how the terrestrial biosphere currently sequesters a third of human CO2 emissions in plant and soil biomass, and is known as the “terrestrial carbon sink”. 

**Light snacks and refreshments will be provided**
