What can Spanish shipwrecks in the Caribbean and tree growth records from the Florida Keys reveal about hurricanes and climate change? Grant Harley, assistant professor of geography at the University of Idaho, will share his research as keynote speaker of Cal State Fullerton’s “All Points of the Compass” geography conference.
The free, public conference takes place from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 3, in Portola Pavilion A and B of the Titan Student Union. In addition to Harley’s presentation, “Hurricanes and Climate Change: A Message Hidden in Spanish Shipwrecks During the Golden Age of Piracy,” the event will showcase CSUF student, faculty and alumni research and feature a demonstration of the Department of Geography and the Environment’s Augmented Reality Sandbox.
Conference registration and more information are available online. The event is hosted by the CSUF Geography Club and the Department of Geography and the Environment, with support from the College of Humanities and Social Sciences Inter-Club Council.
