Click on the links below for detailed information on each of the series which sponsor seminars and lists/links to the past seminars they have sponsored. Individual seminar listings contain downloadable files showing the presentation slides used in the seminars where available. If you are not a federal government employee and would like to attend a seminar, please contact Carl Pasurka (email@example.com) in advance so that you can gain access to the building unless someone else is listed in the seminar write-up.
Please see our list of past seminars:
Environmental Economics Seminars
NCEE provides this forum for presentations on timely topics in environmental economics. Researchers from EPA, other federal agencies, and academia present current work, followed by a collegial discussion of this research. Topics are chosen based on relevance to current EPA issues and, more broadly, to issues of concern to the environmental economics research community. These topics include exploration of innovations in economic research methods as well as how research results can be used to improve environmental policy making.
While subject to change, we hold these seminars at least monthly at EPA headquarters. Please check the Upcoming Events listing periodically for developing details.
Climate Economics Seminars
EPA's National Center for Environmental Economics (NCEE) is pleased to announce the NCEE Climate Economics Seminar Series. This is a bimonthly seminar series dedicated to examining various issues related to the economics of climate change. On occasion, the series will include presentations on aspects of climate science that are particularly relevant to economics. Upcoming topics include the intersection of technology and pollution control policy, economy-wide versus sector-based approaches, the health impacts of climate change, and competitiveness and leakage issues.
The purpose of this series is to keep EPA offices and interested outside researchers informed of the latest research on issues critical to designing and modeling policies that address climate change. To this end, presenters will be recognized experts in their field of research. The series will complement other climate seminars hosted by EPA that focus on scientific, legal, and other policy areas.
The series will follow the format of the other NCEE seminar series. In general, each seminar will be 90 minutes in length with the first half dedicated to presentation and the remainder reserved for questions and discussion. On occasion, we may arrange to have several researchers participate in a panel discussion. Invitations will be circulated by Carl Pasurka. If you already receive announcements for the other NCEE seminar series, you will receive notice of the climate economic seminars automatically. If you do not receive these notices, please contact Carl to be added to the circulation list (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The series started in January, 2008. If you have further questions, please contact Glenn Sheriff (email@example.com).
Climate Science Seminars
EPA's Office of the Science Advisor (OSA) and National Center for Environmental Economics (NCEE) are pleased to announce a new NCEE/OSA Climate Science Seminar Series. This monthly or bi-monthly seminar series will examine a broad range of climate science issues, that may include: key forecasting challenges, new findings in climate science, human health and ecological impacts, and scientific controversies. See our list of Slides and video are available for many of these seminars and can be accessed through the same link.
The objective of this series is for EPA staff, and interested outside researchers, to be well-informed about important emerging issues in climate change science. This series plans to present the best science and a broad spectrum of perspectives that interpret that science. To provide a clear understanding of the latest climate change science, presenters will be selected who are good communicators and are recognized experts in their field of research. This series is intended to complement other climate seminars hosted by EPA that focus on economic, legal, and other policy areas.
In general, the format of each 90-minute seminar will be half presentation and half reserved for questions and discussion. On occasion, we may arrange to have multiple researchers participate in a panel discussion or engage in a dialogue. If you already receive announcements for the other NCEE seminar series, you will receive notice of the climate science seminars automatically. If you do not receive these notices, please contact Carl Pasurka to be added to the circulation list (firstname.lastname@example.org). Where available we have provided links to the presentation slides and videos of past seminars.
