The Second Annual Pacific Northwest Climate Science Conference provides an opportunity to learn about the latest in Pacific Northwest climate change and climate impacts research.

The conference, supported by PNW research institutions and federal and state government agencies (see here for list), aimed to stimulate a place-based (rather than discipline-based) exchange of information about emerging climate, climate impacts, and climate adaptation science in the PNW. The conference also included time for presentation of emerging policy and management goals, objectives, and information needs related to climate impacts and adaptation.

This year's conference consisted of a combination of plenary sessions (focusing on cross-cutting topics of relevance to multiple disciplines and/or with clear practical applications) and poster sessions.

Conference host: University of Washington Climate Impacts Group
