Dr. Jeremy Diem, Associate Professor of Geography at Georgia State University, is available to discuss the National Climate Assessment, which reports that effects of human-induced climate change are already being felt in the United States through extreme weather events.

Diem received his bachelor of science degree in Earth Sciences from The Pennsylvania State University and his master's and Ph.D. degrees in Geography from The University of Arizona.

He teaches an upper-division climate change course and has developed NASA-funded climate-literacy labs for his intro course.

Diem has taught the following courses: Geography 1112 (Introduction to Weather and Climate), Geography 4520/6520 (Quantitative Spatial Analysis), Geography 4530/6530 (Introduction to Remote Sensing), Geography 4642/6642 (Advanced Weather and Climate), Geography 8048 (Seminar in Climatology), and Geography 8050 (Seminar in Environmental Issues).

Diem’s research focuses primarily on climatology, and his main research areas are (1) precipitation variability in the southeastern United States; (2) urban effects on precipitation; (3) climate literacy; (4) air pollution; (5) the North American monsoon; and (6) rainfall in eastern equatorial Africa. Diem has published his research in Annals of the Association of American Geographers, Atmospheric Environment, Climate Research, Environmental Management, Environmental Pollution, Geophysical Research Letters, International Journal of Climatology, Journal of Applied Meteorology, Journal of Applied Meteorology and Climatology, Journal of Climate, Journal of Environmental Management, Journal of Geophysical Research, Journal of the Air and Waste Management Association, Physical Geography, Southeastern Geographer, The Professional Geographer and Theoretical and Applied Climatology.
