Workshop

Physical, Biological, and Human Dimensions of Global Change

calendar
Jul 29th, 1990 - Aug 19th, 1990
location
Aspen, Colorado

This was the Aspen Global Change Institute’s first summer session. This interdisciplinary gathering of research scientists explored and defined the new field of global change science. The group included a subset of science educators exploring the implication of global change for our educational system. The workshop provided a forum for discussing the range and complexity of Earth systems and the role of human activity in relation to natural systems. The purpose was to take stock of the global environmental changes underway and to identify key areas for future research and discussion as the institute set out a road map of its future activities and contributions.
