CISA to assist in CPAS Workshop
The 17th Annual Climate Prediction Applications Workshop (CPASW) will convene in Charleston, South Carolina, June 11–13, for discussion centered on the theme of “Climate Information for Coastal Risk Reduction.” CPASW brings together a diverse community to share developments in research and application of weather and climate information for societal decision-making.
The Carolinas RISA (CISA) is providing support to help organize this year’s event. As part of the workshop Planning Committee Kirstin Dow, Amanda Farris, and Chip Konrad are helping to refine the workshop theme, review abstract submissions, and identify keynote speakers who can share their own experiences in addressing these key climate issues.
