Integrating Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Management to Protect Health and Build Resilience in Pacific IslandsMay 20, 2018 to May 25, 2018Science Session
AGCI & ACES study referencedJanuary 26, 2017
By Jeanne McQueeney, Kathy Chandler-Henry and Jill Ryan
The Eagle County Board of Commissioners wrote an editorial about steps being taken to achieve an 80 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. In the editorial, they reference a 2015 study by the Aspen Global Change Institute and Aspen Center for Environmental Studies that points out there were 23 fewer days of freezing temperatures in 2015 than in the 1970s.

The Lift - Aspen 82
Erin Lentz & Oliver Sharpe
2016 AGCI public lecturer Ken Caldeira sat down with Aspen 82 to discuss his research on ocean acidification in the Great Barrier Reef that he presented in his public lecture Coral Reefs and Ocean Acidification: Effects of an Unsustainable Energy System.
Climate Modeling with Decision Makers in MindApril 27, 2016
Andrew Jones, Katherine Calvin, and Jean-François Lamarque
AGCI Workshop co-chairs Andy Jones, Kate Calvin & Jean-François Lamarque reflect on opportunities identified in the 2015 workshop Impact Relevance and Usability of High Resolution Climate Modeling and Datasets. The purpose of the workshop was to consider how well emerging high-resolution model capabilities and downscaling techniques advance basic scientific understanding of physical processes, support climate impacts assessment, and inform decisions.
Challenges and Opportunities in Earth-Human Systems ResearchApril 25, 2016
Ghassem R. Asrar, Katharine L. Jacobs, and Richard Moss
Ghassem Asrar, Kathy Jacobs & Richard Moss, who chaired the 2015 AGCI workshop on Opportunities for Integration of Remote Sensing, Integrated Assessment, and Adaptation. The workshop focused on providing information for managing complex systems, using Earth observations (especially remote sensing data) more effectively in integrated human-Earth systems models, and increasing multi- and interdisciplinary collaborations across research and applications communities.
AGCI has become an intellectual proving ground, a ferment for new ideas and concepts, and a place where the different disciplines actually talk, and progress. Hal Harvey
