AGCI Workshop Participation
Dr. Kelly Redmond maintains an interest in all facets of climate and climate behavior, its temporal variability, spatial characteristics and physical causes, how climate interacts with other human and natural processes, and how such information is acquired, used, communicated, and perceived. Dr. Redmond serves as Regional Climatologist for the western United States , working in settings that span a diverse range from coasts to mountains, desert to rainforest, and tropical to polar climates. He has played an active role nationally in development of the climate services sector. He has taught graduate and undergraduate classes in climatology, forecasting and synoptics, and atmospheric dynamics.This has entailed work on topics such as climate variability, the observational process, instrumentation, data management, quality control, the interpretation of weather and climate information, drought frequency and characterization, energy consumption, climate indices, trends and variability in climate properties, flood frequency analysis, design criteria, spatial patterns of western U.S. climate variability, El Nino / Southern Oscillation, paleoclimate, wind energy, heavy precipitation and landslides, climate prediction, wildfire, Crater Lake climate and hydrology, salmon, atmospheric stability and inversions, western hydroclimate, and the national snow data set. Interdisciplinary interactions have included agriculture, fisheries, wildlife, forestry, limnology, engineering, water resources and hydrology, land management, entomology, horticulture, marine and terrestrial systems.Dr. Redmond is currently participating in several national and regional activities, initiatives and projects, including: NOAA Regional Climate Center Program, National Weather Service Coop Modernization, the NOAA Climate Reference Network, the Consortium for Integrated Climate Research in Mountain Regions (CIRMOUNT), the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS), NOAA Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessment (RISA) Program under the Climate Program Office, the California Energy Commission PIER and CIEE programs, and the CalFed Bay-Delta Program.
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
What We Do
The Aspen Global Change Institute has been the most prominent place for developing interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary dialogues between scientists and practitioners.Guy Brasseur
