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.

Upcoming Events

    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.
