In June, Dr. Francis Zwiers, president and CEO of the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium (PCIC) at UVic, will be heading to London, Ontario, where he’ll be awarded an honorary doctorate of science at Western University’s spring convocation ceremonies. Zwiers is an internationally recognized expert on climate variability and change and was among a group of scientists connected with UVic who shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). He was an elected member of the bureau of the IPCC for its fifth global climate assessment, which is being released in stages this year.
