On Friday, February 9th, researchers met for the first Grand Challenge workshop which focused on exploring: 1) current trends in the Texas climate and projections for the future; 2) what vulnerabilities this raises for agriculture, hydrology, and ecology; 3) identify speakers and participants for future work; and 5) interdisciplinary dialogue on model integration between the atmospheric science community and the rural agriculture and ecology modeling community. The workshop featured presentations from participants as well as an extended time for breakout discussions. For more information on the workshop including presentations, a list of participants, and output from the breakout session, click here.
The group will now begin planning a speaker or mini-seminar series scheduled for late April/early May. Check back soon for updates.
