  • Looking at multiple lines of evidence and looking for relationships across those lines of evidence provides the bets way for archaeologists to get at issues of culture change/subsistence change, etc.

  • If multiple lines of data are better, and thinking about the numerous sources of archaeological data discussed in lectures and in the text, what kinds of information do we not have? What is a question you cannot really answer with the data we have collected? Once you find your question, what kinds of method and data would be necessary to address that question? Think of it as a mini-proposal to conduct research to address something that is not already known about the Balsam Lake Region. 12/14/10 00:30 © 2007 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

    • 1. World Climate Conference Geneva 1978
    • 2. World Climate Conference, what is it? <ul><li>The World Climate Conference proposes to create a Global </li></ul><ul><li>Framework for Climate Services through which the developers and </li></ul><ul><li>providers of climate information, predictions and services, and the </li></ul><ul><li>climate-sensitive sectors around the world, will work together, to help </li></ul><ul><li>the global community better adapt to the challenges of climate variability and change. </li></ul>
    • 3. <ul><li>A series of international meetings held to tackle the issues of climate </li></ul><ul><li>Held by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) </li></ul><ul><li>Since the conference in Geneva, there has been a total of three conferences held </li></ul><ul><li>Still to this day, the conferences continue to work towards finding solutions for climate related issues that effect our world </li></ul>
    • 4. WMO in Brief <ul><li>“ voice on the state and behaviour of the Earth&apos;s atmosphere, its interaction with the oceans, the climate it produces and the resulting distribution of water resources” </li></ul><ul><li>played a powerful role in contributing to the safety and welfare of humanity </li></ul>
    • 5. History <ul><li>Held in Geneva in 1978, this was one of the first conferences to be held regarding the issue of climate </li></ul><ul><li>Mainly, it focused on climate change and research needed for forecasting future climate trends </li></ul><ul><li>Aim: to encourage global action from all countries to cope with future and current climate changes </li></ul>
    • 6. History <ul><li>Held on the 12-23 of February </li></ul><ul><li>More or less a scientific conference on what was happening with climate change </li></ul><ul><li>Organized by scientists with the goal of looking into climate data and trends on climate change </li></ul><ul><li>Led to second conference </li></ul>
    • 7. So why have the conference? <ul><li>The conference led to the creation of the World Climate Programme and the World Climate Research Programme </li></ul>
    • 8. Second World Climate Conference <ul><li>Held in October of 1990 in Geneva, this conference was essentially a continuation of the first </li></ul><ul><li>More political; a review of the WCP set up from the first meeting </li></ul><ul><li>Risk of climate change grew and issues were announced to the public </li></ul><ul><li>Led to the establishment of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) and the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) </li></ul><ul><li>Kyoto Protocol and Global Framework </li></ul>
    • 9. Global Framework <ul><li>With the first two conferences focusing on climate change, this led to the idea of “Global Framework” which was addressed mainly in the third conference of August 31 st – September 4 th 2009 </li></ul>
    • 10. Global Framework <ul><li>“ Enable better management of the risks of climate variability and change and adaptation to climate change at all levels, through development and incorporation of science-based climate information and prediction into planning, policy and practice.” </li></ul>
    • 11. Global Framework <ul><li>Designed to link scientific advances on climate predictions to the needs of their users for decision making allowing individuals to better cope with climate changes </li></ul>
    • 12. So What Does the Future Hold? <ul><li>With the outcome of Global Framework, we are better equipped to support disaster risk management and climate risk management </li></ul>
    • 13. Future Plans <ul><li>Thanks to the first conference held, we’ve created “widespread social, economic and environmental benefits through more effective climate risk management and increased capacities for adaptation to climate variability and change” </li></ul>
