The CIG is an interdisciplinary research group funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Program Office, with additional financial and technical support from U of W.
The presentation is the fourth in a series of summer lectures: “The Climate Action Imperative: Understanding Impacts & Making Choices,” featuring eight experts on climate change, oceanographers to botanists, biologists to meteorologists, co-sponsored by various local organizations and civic groups, including the National Parks Service, Madrona Institute, San Juan Island Library and League of Women Voters.
