Bill Collins, director of the Climate and Ecosystem Sciences Division, has been selected by AGU as the 2019 Tyndall History of Global Environmental Change Lecturer. The Tyndall History of Global Environmental Change Lecture honors the life and work of physicist, John Tyndall. Tyndall’s measurements in the late 1850s and early 1860s verified the importance of the greenhouse effect that had been proposed by Fourier in 1824. This Global Environmental Change section named lecture is presented annually at the AGU Fall Meeting, held in San Francisco.
