EPA’s Office of Research and Development recently awarded 14 grantee projects on climate-induced changes in extreme events in the context of air and water quality management. A goal of this research funding is to seek a better understanding of the hazards (the extreme events) and to establish ways for climate scientists, impact assessment modelers, air and water quality managers, and other stakeholders to produce information necessary to form sound policy in relation to extreme events and their impact on air and water quality under a changing climate. At this upcoming forum, researchers from across the country will present their research plans and early results.
To attend this event in-person, please email Whitney Beck (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than Friday, February 15, 2013 and provide name, email address, and affiliation of each person planning to attend. For those unable to attend in person, the presentations will be broadcast via webinar. Register for the webinar by visiting: http://www.epa.gov/ncer/events/#feb2613.
