Graduate Student Climate Conference

Mission


Enhanced understanding of climate, climate change, and climate impacts is of significant importance as our planet continues to warm. Climate science is not a field encompassed in a single academic area, but demands an integrated and interdisciplinary approach to scientific research. The University of Washington Program on Climate Change (PCC) has established a successful framework to promote interaction and collaboration among faculty and graduate students from a wide range of disciplines who share an interest in climate science research. The Graduate Climate Conference (GCC) extends this collaborative model, to provide a forum for graduate students studying climate at institutions across the country.
