ASP Summer Colloquium 2014

Uncertainty is present in all phases of climate change research from the physical science (e.g., projections of future climate) to the impacts through to the effort to make decisions regarding mitigation and adaptation across different spatial scales. This theme will embrace all aspects of uncertainty in climate change research, providing a pedagogic whole for stu-dents, post-docs, and early career scientists interested in any and all aspects of climate change. One central focus will be the need to understand the strands of uncertainty through-out the climate change problem in order to focus effectively in any one area. We aim to train the next generation of postgraduates in interdisciplinary thinking.
This colloquium builds on a workshop held two years ago at NCAR in IMAGe. Core topics will be similar but new topics have also been added. To view the agenda, abstracts, talks, etc. of this previous workshop, please visit: https://www2.image.ucar.edu/event/uncertainty-climate-change-research-integrated-approach.
The Advanced Study Program will fund travel and living expenses for about 25 graduate student participants and 10 postdoctoral researchers or early career scientists (within 5 years after receipt of PhD) during the summer colloquium.
Visitors are welcome to attend any lectures in the colloquium but are asked to refrain from extensive participation in discussions.
