FEATURED THEME

Geographies of Climate Change

Climate change is perhaps the major environmental challenge facing humankind today. Geographies of Climate Change, a featured theme for the upcoming AAG Annual Meeting in Tampa, highlights the complex spatial dimensions of climate change including the observed and anticipated geographical differentiation in potential impacts and vulnerability. Julie Winkler’s Presidential Plenary that opens the Annual Meeting will focus on this theme, and will feature Mike Hulme, author of Why We Disagree about Climate Change; Linda Mearns, project leader of the North American Regional Climate Change Assessment Program; Susanne Moser, co-author of the recently-published Successful Adaptation to Climate Change, and J. Marshall Shepherd, current president of the American Meteorological Society.

Contributions in the Geographies of Climate Change theme will address the scientifi c complexity and uncertainty of climate change, its political and policy contextualization, the challenges of formulating adaptation and mitigation strategies, and the importance of effective communication strategies.

Session 1756 is the AAG Presidential Plenary.
