PACIFIC CLIMATE WORKSHOP

PACLIM 2019


February 17-20th, 2019

EXTREME EVENTS 


PACLIM is a multidisciplinary workshop that broadly addresses the climatic phenomena occurring in the eastern Pacific Ocean and western North America. The purpose of the workshop is to understand climate effects in this region by bringing together specialists from diverse fields including physical, social, and biological sciences. Time scales from weather to the Quaternary are addressed in oral and poster presentations.   


The theme for Paclim2019 will focus on the weather and climate of Extreme Events. The past year has been marked by extreme heat, wildfires, landslide and flooding events.  These events are related to immediate weather conditions as well as recent historic drought conditions.  The workshop encourages participation from climate scientists who are examining the climate dynamics behind extreme events and paleoclimatologists reconstructing past extreme events and connections.  We also encourage the participation of archaeologists and historians who examine the impact of such events on society as well as current policy and emergency preparedness managers.

We welcome oral and poster presentations on this years theme of Extreme Events and as always welcome presentations (oral and poster)  related to the general theme of climate and the Pacific.
