Columbia River and Adjacent Waters (CRAW) Seminars

The Columbia River and Adjacent Waters (CRAW) Seminar Series is an occasional series of multidisciplinary seminars with a non-exclusive focus on the physical dynamics of the Columbia River, including its onshore drainage basin, lower-river estuary, and offshore plume, and the regional atmosphere above. Thus, the CRAW dominion is central to many sustainability issues in Oregon and Washington. And the CRAW Seminar Series provides a forum for fostering a multidisciplinary, system-wide approach. This approach will help the Portland Metropolitan Area’s research community gain usefully accurate understandings of the CRAW physical dynamics, ecological and societal impacts, and responses to climate variability and global change as priority tasks for the foreseeable future.
