On May 3rd Marine Sciences and Geosciences hosted a joint Climate Modeling Symposium and Workshop at Avery Point. The goals of the symposium and workshop were to build collaborations between individuals in Marine Sciences, Geosciences, and Geography who work on issues related to climate change and foster research and education on this important topic.
26 participants listened to seven faculty from three different departments speak about their current research. After the talks, a discussion session allowed free exchange of questions and ideas regarding climate modeling and research. The event ended with a mini-workshop and plans for future gatherings on the topic of climate change.
