Mike Adler presents an update on a talk he gave in 2014, when the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change(IPCC) issued their comprehensive fifth assessment report on the climate. The IPCC is an organization of governments that are members of the United Nations or WMO (World Meteorological Organization). The first part of the sixth assessment report is now completed, “Climate Change 2021, The Physical Science Basis” While the full report is 1300 pages, I will try to summarize it as well as bring in information from other sources. 

A Geological Journey through Oman

Join James Cresswell for a geological journey through the mountains of northern Oman, featuring exceptionally well-exposed rocks and unique, often breath-taking, scenery. Mountain ranges of more than 3000m altitude and deeply incised canyons with turquoise perennial streams contrast with dry but golden sand deserts. Oman’s most famous geological feature is the world’s largest and best exposed ophiolite complex, the Semail Ophiolite; in it you can see rocks that were part of the mantle, you can touch the moho, and you can see sheeted dikes, incredible pillow basalts, and fossilized white and black smokers.

The Nature and ID of Plants in Winter

Presented by Frances Clark, botanist.  Our native plants are dormant and mostly covered in snow. However, trees stand tall and shrubs branch above our thick blanket of white.  Even some herbaceous perennials hold up remnant fruits.  In fact the reduced numbers and limited ID clues of plants help us focus on the details of those that are apparent.  This program will help you ID about 30 species visible while snowshoeing and skiing in the woods or across the sage flats. Also, Clark will mention the importance of plants to wildlife survival. For more information on Teton Plant Society, visit Tetonplants.org.
