Earth’s Energy-Balance: A Climate Modelling Workshop

May 9, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm
The Burnaby Festival of Learning is proud to present Earth’s Energy Balance, hosted by Christine Leclerc and co-facilitators!

This workshop is an introduction to some of the key concepts that make up our understanding of the Earth’s energy balance, including electromagnetic radiation, blackbodies, and thermal electromagnetic radiation. Receive a tutorial on the Python programming language so you can then take part in a hands-on lab activity – modelling the Earth’s energy! No prior coding experience required – the tutorial will help you understand how the model works so you can explore how changes in things like ocean depth or temperature affect the Earth’s energy.


Christine Leclerc lives in Coast Salish Homelands / Burnaby, B.C. She is an award-winning author and science communicator who studies the water cycle impacts of nature-based climate solutions at Simon Fraser University‘s Climate Research Lab. In addition, Leclerc Chairs the BC NDP‘s Standing Committee on Agriculture. She is a past member of SFU’s Hydrology Research Group and has served on the non-profit boards of Embark Sustainability and Sierra Club BC.

All online events will have Zoom links sent to attendees 24 hours prior to the event.

Attendees will receive confirmation once registration is complete.
