Climate change talk at UHH


The University of Hawaii at Hilo will host a seminar featuring David Helweg, director of the Pacific Islands Climate Science Center (PICSC), at noon today in Room 118 of the Science and Technology Building. The event is free and open to the public.

Helweg’s talk, titled “Vision and Framework of Science at the Department of Interior: Pacific Islands Climate Science Center,” focuses on the center and its efforts in Hawaii and the Pacific region. PICSC, hosted by a consortium of the University of Hawaii and the University of Guam, was launched in 2012 as one of eight regional Climate Science Centers set up by the Department of Interior to complement and work with a national network of Landscape Conservation Cooperatives to address challenges of climate change.

PICSC, in partnership with the Pacific Islands Climate Change Cooperative (PICCC), works with federal, state and other entities to deliver scientific research and interpretation to support management of natural and cultural resources. PICSC’s vision is to inform and support sustainability and climate adaptation of human and ecological communities in the Pacific.
