Titled "Preparing for 21st Century Climate Change in Indiana: An Overview of the IN Climate Change Impacts Assessment," this talk will give an overview of the Indiana Climate Change Impacts Assessment. Bazán and Hamlet will discuss some of the most important impacts of climate change on our region, including extreme heat and humidity, river flooding, and urban stormwater impacts.

Alexandro Bazán is the Sustainability Project Manager for the City of South Bend. Alexandro manages the Energy Assistance Solar Savings Initiative (EASSI) program, the first of its kind program for the City that assists nonprofits and community organizations to improve the energy efficiency of their building and implement solar energy. He mainstreams sustainability principles into City programs and operations.

Dr. Alan F. Hamlet is an Associate Professor in Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences at the University of Notre Dame. He is a specialist in the integrated computer modeling of climate, hydrologic systems, water resources systems, and ecosystems. Over the last 25 years Dr. Hamlet has been involved extensively in integrated modeling studies in North America (e.g. in the western, central, and southeastern U.S.) as well as at the global scale. Recent large-scale efforts include climate change impacts assessment for the entire Midwest and Great Lakes region, and scenarios supporting the Indiana Climate Change Impacts Assessment.
