Master Forum in Sustainability Science

Meet Dr. Klaus Hasselmann, the 2021 Physics Nobel Laureate who is recognized as the “father” of the 1st Earth observation mission of European Space Agency Fingerprinting of anthropogenic climate change.

Monday, 20 December 2021, from 4 to 5 p.m. (UTC+8)

Dr. Klaus Hasselmann is a German oceanographer and climate modeler. He is Professor Emeritus at the University of Hamburg and former Director of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology.
Both the theory of stochastic climate forcing and the development of the fingerprint method from Dr. Hasselmann are key contributions to #ClimateScience. He has won a number of awards over his career, including the 2021 Nobel Prize in Physics jointly with Syukuro Manabe and Giorgio Parisi for groundbreaking contributions to the “physical modeling of earth’s climate, quantifying variability and reliably predicting global warming” and “understanding of complex systems”.
In this Master Forum, Dr. Klaus Hasselmann will deliver his #NobelPrize lecture.
