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: Find out more HERE and submit a paper proposal
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 consider proposing a paper or a 4 or 5 paper panel (deadline TBD) and also plan on attending! Details available https://climatechange.uoregon.edu/2016-Symposium
