The head of a center charged with providing the latest science on climate change in the Pacific will lead a seminar Wednesday at the University of Hawaii at Hilo.

David Helweg will speak on “Vision and Framework at the Department of Interior: Pacific Islands Climate Science Center.”

The Pacific center is one of eight regional climate science centers set up by the Department of Interior in 2012 to address climate change and related impacts on natural and cultural resources. It is headquartered at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and supported by the University of Guam.

The centers, which are managed by the US Geological Survey, work with government and other entities to support sustainability of people and environments in the Pacific and assist in the adaptation to climate changes.

The seminar, which is free and open to the public, will be held at noon in Room 118 of the UH-Hilo Science and Technology Building.
