Arbor Group to host climate change event with Amy Snover on June 6th, 2018

Join University of Washington Climate Impacts Group Director, Amy Snover, for a briefing on the impacts of climate change for our region and communities. Dr. Snover will share the science behind what we know about when, where and how climate change will unfold in the Puget Sound area and across Washington state, as well as the impacts of concern for local communities, businesses and natural systems. She will describe efforts being made to both prevent and prepare for these effects, including examples of how concern about local impacts is catalyzing action by our city, county and state governments. She will discuss innovative new approaches to science and community partnership, pioneered by the Climate Impacts Group, that enable the development of new knowledge that supports local decision makers seeking to identify and address emerging climate risks.

College of the Environment Seminar Series on Critical Interdisciplinary Problems

UW students, faculty and staff are invited to attend the inaugural UW College of the Environment Critical Interdisciplinary Problems Seminar Series lecture on March 6th at 4:30 PM in the SAFS Auditorium.

The theme of the inaugural seminar is “West Coast Wildfires: What are the Key Scientific Issues?’. After a year of major wildfires from British Columbia to southern California, with dozens of deaths and damage in the tens of billions of dollars, western wildfires are clearly one of the key environmental issues for the region.  This seminar will explore what we know regarding the origins of the problem and discuss some of the key scientific, technical, and societal issues that must be addressed.
