Effective climate change solutions depend on a comprehensive understanding that draws from many disciplines. Since 2003, DISCCRS1 has hosted symposia for early-career researchers to catalyze interdisciplinary communication, teamwork, and international collaboration, while laying the foundation for dynamic collegial networks that are better prepared to understand and respond to the myriad challenges posed by climate change. Participants will share their research; engage in discussions with peers, mentors, and funding agency representatives; and participate in communication and team training. Thirty early-career scholars will be selected with the expectation that they will become leaders in their chosen fields.

Airfare and on-site expenses will be supported through grants from NSF and NASA
