Outreach, Classes, and Seminars

Presentations

The Climate Impacts Group (CIG) regularly gives presentations on the implications of Pacific Northwest climate variability and change to policy makers, resource managers, researchers, students, and other members of the interested public at federal, state, and local levels.

The following is a sampling of recent presentations. Requests for presentations should be directed to CIG's outreach team.

Request a Presentation


To request a presentation from the CIG, please submit a presentation request. Inquiries are carefully evaluated to determine the most suitable presenter(s). You will receive an automated response that your request has been received and will be contacted once a speaker for your event has been identified, generally within 2 weeks of the request.

Please note that the CIG receives many requests for presentations. Due to staff and funding limitations, we are not able to satisfy all presentation requests.

Using Figures from CIG Presentations


Members of the public are welcome, with permission, to incorporate figures or other information from these presentations into their own presentations. Please contact the web administrator for permission and alternate file formats (if needed). Any material taken from these presentations must be attributed as follows:

Research findings will change with time. If you are interested in using components of a presentation that is more than one year old, we recommend contacting the web administrator to verify that the presentation reflects the latest scientific findings.
