URI Graduate School of Oceanography, Corless Auditorium 218 South Ferry Rd.

The effects of climate change on water resources are being felt throughout the world – everything from acute water shortages and threatened water supplies to extreme flooding and altered ecosystems.

In fact, the United Nations cites water as the primary medium through which climate change is being experienced.

How are scientists working to understand and project the connections between climate change and water resources? What are communities, policy experts and decision-makers doing to meet the challenge and develop solutions? These topics and more will take center stage at Metcalf Institute’s 2019 Annual Public Lecture Series, June 3-7. 

Monday through Thursday lectures begin at 3:30 p.m. Friday's lecture starts at 11 a.m.
