Quantitative Approaches in Climate Change Research

The mission of QTM is to promote the teaching, learning, and use of quantitative theory and methods. One of the ways we seek to engage students, faculty, and the community is by overing a variety of events throughout the acacemic year, a number of which revolve around the Institute's annual theme. Quantitative Approaches in Climate Change Research is the theme for academic year 2018-2019. This theme will consist of a 2-day climate change symposium and an outstanding speaker series - check the website for updates, times, locations and RSVP!
