Seminar: Climate Change Science & Adaptation Challenges


Leading international climate change scientists were in Hobart at the beginning of 2013 participating in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working group one, 4th lead authors meeting. The Adaptation Research Network for Marine Biodiversity and Resources aka Marine Adaptation Network and National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF) took this opportunity to invite two of these scientists,  Dr Peter Stott (UK) and Dr Linda Mearns (USA), to present their research relevant to climate change and adaptation to a public audience in Hobart. The co-hosted event was held at the University of Tasmania, and attracted 300 members of the public.

The event was opened by the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Tasmania Prof Peter Rathjen, Senator Christine Milne and the Director of NCCARF Prof Jean Palutikof.

This event was well received by attendees, and proved to be a fantastic opportunity for the Tasmanian community to hear about current climate change research and to ask questions of two leading international climate change scientists.
