Do you have an interesting presentation about climate science, impacts, and adaptations that you would like to share with the public?
The Oregon Climate Change Research Institute wants you to submit an abstract for an oral presentation, poster presentation, or special session at the 10th Annual Northwest Climate Conference! This conference will be taking place on October 8-10th, 2019 at the Sentinel Hotel in Portland, Oregon.
The Northwest Climate Conference provides a unique opportunity to learn from and connect with a diverse community of experts fostering a more climate resilient Northwest. The event brings together practitioners, scientists, tribal communities, and decision-makers to share knowledge, ideas, and best practices related to climate change science, impacts, and adaptation in the Pacific Northwest. Past topics have included drought, wildfire, extreme events, coastal flooding, human and ecosystem health, and resiliency planning.
Submissions are requested for a range of topics focused on climate science, impacts, and adaptation. Presentations and special sessions that connect science to management decisions and implementation of adaptation actions are strongly encouraged. Emphasis is on talks that are approachable for a wide audience on topics of broad interest.
Potential Topic Areas Include:
- Aquatic ecosystems
- Climate variability and change in the Northwest
- Climate dynamics in the Northwest
- Coastal systems and shoreline management
- Collaboration and co-production of decision-relevant research
- Climate communications, engagement, and education
- Equity and climate justice
- Extreme events (e.g., drought, floods, wildfire)
- Forests and forest ecosystems
- Integrating climate adaptation and hazard mitigation planning
- Intersections between adaptation and mitigation
- Human health
- Hydrology and water resources
- Infrastructure and the built environment
- Insurance, security and risk management
- Land use and community planning
