41st Climate Diagnostics Workshop hosted at UMaine – B. Lyon

The Climate Change Institute and School of Earth and Climate Sciences at the University of Maine hosted the 41st Climate Diagnostics Workshop, 10 . 3–6. The workshop, sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), was held at the Wells Conference Center. Over 120 U.S. and international climate scientists participated in the workshop, discussing their latest research findings on topics ranging from the current state of the tropical oceans to the loss of arctic sea ice and its influence on mid-latitude climate. Several UMaine faculty members chaired sessions during the meeting and presented their research. “It’s an important meeting that served to highlight climate as a signature research area at the University of Maine,” said Bradfield Lyon, an associate research professor at CCI who helped organize the meeting. “Regional and global climate processes are strongly interconnected. So, too, is UMaine’s climate research within the global scientific community.”
