Hello PCC Community-

This years' summer institute is on the topic of "Climate Variability and
Uncertainty" and will be held Sept 15-17th at Friday Harbor Labs. We are
happy to have been accepted as a Friday Harbor Labs Symposium again this

The Summer Institute/FHL Symposium is being organized by Dargan Frierson of
Atmospheric Sciences.

Topics for discussion include:
What are the primary sources of uncertainty in climate projections?
How can we use past climate variability to understand how natural and human
systems will be impacted by future climate change?
How predictable is regional and global climate variability one to ten years
in advance? Could better climate models lead to better predictions on these
time scales?
Is climate change already affecting the likelihood of extreme floods and
droughts regionally?
Given uncertainty in climate predictions on decadal time scales, how can the
impacts of climate change on vulnerable human and natural systems be
What are the social and economic drivers that have to be considered?

Speakers and agenda are being finalized, but registration is available now
(note registration does fill, so do register once you know you can

We'll have a poster session and speed talks again this year, and a graduate
student paper discussion prior to the summer institute. Carpools will be
organized later in the summer.

Details are posted and will continue to be updated as they become available
