University of Oregon Climate Change Research Group (CCRG)

The University of Oregon Climate Change Research Group (CCRG) is a loose association of faculty and graduate students at the University of Oregon working on climate change from the full range of disciplinary perspectives. The CCRG has two major "programs" - a monthly speaker colloquium for faculty and graduate students and an annual Symposium at which faculty and graduate students have an opportunity to present their research to the University community.

  • 5th Annual UO Climate Change Research Symposium, February 17th, 2016:  

    Final schedule is now available HERE.

    Location: Museum of Natural and Cultural History - University of Oregon
    This Symposium is an opportunity for University of Oregon faculty, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates to present their research on climate-change-related issues. It is a great opportunity to both present your own research and learn from the numerous other scholars working at UO on the issue of global climate change. Please plan on attending!
