Named for Charles David Keeling, a 1948 graduate of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Illinois who was renowned for making extremely precise measurements of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2), this annual lecture explores topics of anthropogenic climate change. The Lecture is sponsored by the Department of Atmospheric Sciences and iSEE. Past sponsors have also included the School of Chemical Sciences (SCS), the School of Earth, Society and Environment (SESE), and the Department of Chemistry. 

This year's speaker is atmospheric chemist Manvendra Krishna Dubey, a laboratory fellow at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Dubey’s multidisciplinary research has created a confluence of field observations, laboratory measurements, computational models and simulations to inform climate-biogeochemistry-carbon models to improve predictions of climate change and air-quality for a responsible energy policy.
