March 2018 Mini-Newsletter *Website Updates*

We’ve updated the PCC website <https://pcc.uw.edu/> in several ways and one
change that you’ll notice is our new research tab where we spotlight
current climate work by PCC-affiliated scientists. These “Research
Highlights” <https://pcc.uw.edu/research/research-highlights/> include
short (<300 word) summaries written by the author or by a colleague who
understands the broader context of the research.



Have a new publication that you’d like the PCC community to know about?
Contact David Bonan <http://uwpcc.ocean.washington.edu/person/David_Bonan>
or Miriam Bertram <http://uwpcc.ocean.washington.edu/person/Miriam_Bertram>
at uwpcc at uw.edu or graduate student Amira Chowyuk
<http://uwpcc.ocean.washington.edu/person/Amira_Chowyuk> at
anchowyu at uw.edu. We’ll
assist as needed, to create a post for this catalogue of current research. We
encourage quotes, how the data was acquired, fun facts, and things that
humanize the research. @pcceduc will tweet each new post.



Feedback on how we can improve this new feature is encouraged!



*Many thanks to the College of the Environment Web Development Team
and **Center
for Environmental Visualization* <http://www.cev.washington.edu/>* for
continued support of the PCC website.*
2018 Mini-Symposia

The Program on Climate Change hosted its inaugural “mini-symposium” at the

“Using past observations to constrain future climate variability and
change”, the mini-symposium brought together a wide range of participants
and speakers, including from the School of Oceanography, Department of
Atmospheric Sciences, Department of Earth and Space Sciences, Joint
Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean, Applied Physics Lab,
and NOAA’s Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory. Also participating were
a number of invited guests: Andrea Burke (Univ. of St. Andrews), Elizabeth
Maroon (CU Boulder), Sarah Kang (UNIST), Jen Kay (CU Boulder), James Rae
(Univ. of St. Andrews), and Mark Zelinka (LLNL). *….MORE

The next PCC mini-symposium is in the planning phase. The Wildfire Smoke
Risk Communication Stakeholder Synthesis Symposium (WSRC S3) will convene
local practitioners and the UW PCC community to discuss the current state
of wildfire and risk communication research. They will identify and
prioritize needs, barriers, collaborative solutions and funding sources to
promote effective wildfire smoke risk communication across Washington State.
Proposal team includes Tania Busch-Isaksen, PhD, MPH, Annie Doubleday, MPH
Student, Claire Pendergast, MPH Student, Heidi Roop, PhD, CIG and NWCSC,
and the lead, Nicole Errett, PhD, MSPH. *Please contact Nicole Errett at *
