Noontime Seminar Wraps Up 9th Year

The Center’s noontime seminar series was launched in the fall of 2002 as a means of sharing science policy-related research at the Center and elsewhere at CU. The series’ theme this year was “decision making under uncertainty”. A sample of the talks by faculty, graduate students and visitors include: “Quantification of the Treatment of Uncertainty by the IPCC AR4”, “Dryness and Desperate Measures: Ranching, Land Tenure, and Drought Coping in the Rocky Mountain West”, and “Inundation or Ignorance? Public Perception of Storm Surge Risk.” We are currently planning our fall schedule which will focus on water, climate, sustainability and innovation. To be placed on our events mailing list and receive news of upcoming events, join our mailing list. See you in the fall!
