LAN: Seminars & Webinars

The project has hosted several seminars and webinars that have been viewed in person (OSU Campus, Kidder 202) and online via streaming at http://live.oregonstate.edu.  Recorded seminars are posted below.

Thursday, May 22, 2014, 2-3 pm - Third time's the charm: the 2014 U.S. National Climate Assessment Report, Dr. Philip Mote, Director, Oregon Climate Change Research Institute. 

In 1990, Congress passed the U.S. Global Change Research Act which among other things calls for an assessment report every four years. On May 6, the President’s Administration released the third National Climate Assessment. This report is by far the most comprehensive, with 30 chapters covering climate change impacts on various regions and sectors, as well as adaptation and mitigation.  The report emphasizes that climate change is already noticeable and affecting Americans in a variety of ways, and presents fascinating depth and breadth of evidence.  Dr. Mote co-authored the report’s Northwest chapter and served on the report's advisory committee.  In this seminar, he gave an overview of the assessment and its findings.

The webinar was co-sponsored by the Geography program in the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences, the Oregon Climate Change Research Institute, and the Willamette Water 2100 Project.

The video of Dr. Mote can also be viewed on OSU Media Space.
