This years' summer institute will focus on the challenges of preparing for climate change in the presence of climate variability and uncertainty. The workshop will promote interaction between diverse physical climate scientists, ecosystem scientists, health professionals, and social scientists. Bringing these groups together is essential if we want to be able to bridge disciplinary divides to better anticipate how to prepare for the challenges that climate change will bring to natural and human systems. We will focus here on systems that are most vulnerable to climate change including understanding the impacts on ecosystems already under threat from other human activities as well as the potential impacts on vulnerable human populations.
Topics for discussion include:
Graduate student paper discussions sessions: TBD. Look for three, probably in August.
Agenda and registration links to be posted late spring/early summer.
