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 focus group named lecture is presented annually at the AGU Fall Meeting, held in San Francisco, Calif. The Tyndall Lecture is webcast and made available as an archived presentation on the AGU website. Specifically, this lecture focuses on the development of the science underlying global environmental change and provides a historical perspective.
The Tyndall Lecturer is selected in recognition of outstanding contributions to our understanding of global environmental change.
