On November 14 and 15, scientists, agencies, and industry gathered at the University of Florida to discuss climate issues.
The two day event began with the Florida Climate Institute Annual Event (click here for event program) on Monday which offered attendees diverse presentations about various climate scenarios for Florida and the impacts on the environment and economy. Many also participated in a communications workshop to better bridge the gap between science, policy, and citizenry. The evening keynotes, Steve Seibert and Virginia Burkett, presented an interesting balance of social responsibility and climate science.
Over the 2 days, there were 17 presentations, 175 attendees, and 64 posters contributing the success of the events.
Thanks to all who participated!
