NOAA Climate & Global Change


NOAA’s Climate Program Office and UCAR’s Visiting Scientist Programs

held a special celebration to mark the


20th anniversary of the Climate and Global Change
Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

It’s been two decades since NOAA launched its Climate and Global Change Postdoctoral Program. The C&GC program was created in response to a lack of trained specialists in a burgeoning area— and it’s kept up with continued expansion in climate change study.
Nearly half of the program’s 176 alumni gathered in Washington, D.C., for a 20th-anniversary reunion on 14–15 April.
The two-day symposium honored and celebrated the program’s success.

Emceed by Richard Somerville (Scripps Institution of Oceanography), the two days included lectures and panel discussions as well as science talks spanning the program’s 20 years, by program alumni and invited guests.
