AGCI hosts public lectures by leading scientists as part of an event series named in honor of Walter Orr Roberts, a notable scientist, humanitarian, and founder of the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, CO. This series has covered the gamut of global change topics from changes in biodiversity, to human health changes in response to the environment, to the climate of earth's past, present, and future.
Conceived in 1989 and conducted each year since 1990, AGCI's interdisciplinary workshops bring together scientists from across the globe to discuss current, critical topics in global environmental change.
AGCI is dedicated to identifying promising policies, technologies, and research ideas that accommodate the energy requirements of the human population while reducing the environmental impact of civilization’s energy needs. Our solutions page showcases solution strategies, AGCI's Energy Table and Energy Tool, and our Quarterly Research Review series.
The interactive Roaring Fork Observation Network (iRON) is comprised of a series of local watershed-wide monitoring stations (ranging in elevation from 6,200ft to over 12,000ft) that help to improve local understanding of our ecosystems in the context of a changing climate.
In order to close the gap between scientific information and public understanding, AGCI produces graphics backed by sound science to convey messages that would benefit from visual explanation.
To facilitate shared learning and capacity building, the Mountain West Climate Services Partnership is a network of researchers and local champions working to increase access to information, tools, and other resources to help small and medium-sized communities throughout the Mountain West region prepare for climate change.
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
AGCI has been the most prominent place for developing interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary dialogues between scientists and practitioners.Guy Brasseur
