Two of AGCI's 2013 workshops explored Adaptation to Climate Change in Mountain and Coastal Areas, one in Hamburg, the other in Aspen. A recent report by a team of NOAA and CIRES researchers has found that warming in mountain regions may be augmented in comparison to overall global warming, leading to a need for more high elevation monitoring sites.
AGCI has become an intellectual proving ground, a ferment for new ideas and concepts, and a place where the different disciplines actually talk, and progress. Hal Harvey
