Climate Talks 2022: “From Thule to MOSAiC”

Mo, 12.12.2022
18:00 - 20:00 Uhr

As a recent study has shown, the impact of climate change is almost four times stronger in the Arctic than elsewhere, a phenomenon that has been identified as “Arctic amplification”.

This event, organized within the French Embassy’s cycle of “ClimaTalks”, honours Jean Malaurie, France’s most distinguished Arctic researcher on the occasion of his 100th birthday. Discussions will focus on the development of Arctic research since Professor Malaurie’s legendary expedition to Thule in North-West Greenland during the winter 1950-51 and his extraordinary account thereof entitled The Last Kings of Thule (1955, German ed. 1957 with a preface by J. Georgi), the most widely distributed book about Greenland in the world.
