Here is the schedule for the Fall 2011 New England Climate Colloquium
- mark your calendars and spread the word!  

This fall, our theme is "Climate Change & the Urban Environment." 
This lecture series (co-sponsored by the Departments of Civil and
Environmental Engineering, Geosciences, and Environmental
Conservation) is designed to attract an audience interested in
interdisciplinary research with a focus on regional climate change
issues.  The colloquium will present research on climate change and
impacts, encouraging collaboration within the Northeast climate
research community, connecting regional stakeholders and climate
researchers, as well as helping to define future directions of
regional climate change research.  

We hope to see you at an event soon!

Best, 
Addie Holland and Richard Palmer
