In addition, U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu will present the 11th annual Sackler Lecture beginning at 6 p.m. on March 31 in the auditorium of the American Association for the Advancement of Science building, 1200 New York Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C. A complete program agenda and registration information are available at Sackler_climate_science. Reporters who wish to attend must register in advance.

This colloquium was organized by Rita Colwell, University of Maryland; Christopher Field, Carnegie Institution; Jeffrey Shaman, Columbia University; and Susan Solomon, NOAA. The NAS Sackler Colloquia are made possible by a generous gift from Jill Sackler in memory of her husband Arthur M. Sackler.
