2017 Noble Lectures - "Topics in troposphere-stratosphere coupling"

These lectures are intended for a wide audience. The special colloquium will be held in Koffler House, room KP108, followed by four lectures held in Earth Science Basement, room ES B149. Refreshments will be served half an hour prior to the start of each lecture in the lobby, just outside the lecture room. All lectures will be 50 minutes.
