Nuclear War and Environmental Impacts

June 23, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm


Nuclear War and Environmental Impacts

Join the National Academies for a series of information gathering webinars as part of the study on the potential environmental impacts of nuclear war.

  • On Thursday, June 22nd from 11:00am-1:00pm MT, the committee will hear about the state of agricultural modeling.
  • On Friday, June 23rd from 11:00am-2:00pm MT, the committee will hear about potential impacts on terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems, trade, and the state of integrated assessment modeling.
  • On Monday, June 26th from 10:00am-12:00pm MT, the committee will hear about aerosol chemistry and associated atmospheric dynamics. The public are welcome to register to attend.

Advances in Earth system modeling offer an opportunity to improve understanding of the environmental impacts from nuclear war scenarios with greater accuracy.

A committee for the Independent Study on Potential Environmental Effects of Nuclear War will review the potential environmental effects and socio-economic consequences that could unfold following nuclear wars, and explore these scenarios ranging from small-scale to large-scale exchanges between major powers.

Register to attend.
