Climate Change Impacts on Water Resources in the Pacific Northwest

Event Date: 
05/12/2011 - 9:00am - 5:00pm
Event Location: 
The Mountaineers Program Center
7700 Sand Point Way NE
Seattle, WA 98115
United States

Symposium background
The Pacific Northwest is already seeing impacts from climate change, in the form of receding glaciers, faster snowmelt and milder winters. These changes have potentially devastating effects on flood regimes, water availability and aquatic ecosystems. The better we understand the changes that have already happened and those that are predicted, the better we can plan and prepare for them. This one-day symposium will feature presentations from a range of experts about observed and modelled impacts of climate change on our region's water resources, and policy responses.

We will be reading Solar by Ian McEwan.

Here's a brief description of the novel:

"When Nobel prize-winning physicist Michael Beard's personal and professional lives begin to intersect in unexpected ways, an opportunity presents itself in the guise of an invitation to travel to New Mexico. Here is a chance for him to extricate himself from his marital problems, reinvigorate his career, and very possibly save the world from environmental disaster."
