NRESS Environmental Sciences Seminar Series 2:30 PM to 3:30 PM

2:30 PM to 3:30 PM - James Hall, G46: NRESS PhD Program Fall 2018 Environmental Sciences Seminar Series presents "Navigating the New Arctic", a mini-series within the seminar series. We welcome the third of four speakers in thie mini-series:Dr. Michael Rawlins, Associate Director of the Climate System Research Center, UMass-AmherstUnderstanding Terrestrial Arctic Water and Carbon Cycles and the Impacts of Climate WarmingWater, biogeochemical constituents, and energy define key linkages across the Arctic land, atmosphere, and ocean domains. The terrestrial Arctic water cycle is central to a range of climatic processes and to the transfer of carbon, energy, and a host of other constituents from land areas to coastal waters of the Arctic Ocean. For example, the quantity and quality of river discharge in Arctic regions is influenced by processes involving climate, watershed attributes and, increasingly, hydrological cycle intensification and permafrost thaw. In this talk I describe our current understanding of the connections between a warming climate and flows of water and carbon from arctic land areas to coastal margins. The research leverages observed data and hydrological modeling to examine the impacts of warming on terrestrial Arctic water and biogeochemical fluxes. I also describe data collection efforts for a new Long Term Ecological Research site established to better understand the biogeochemistry and food webs of lagoon complexes along the Alaskan Beaufort Sea coast.

We welcome the last of four speakers in thie mini-series:Dr. Darren Ranco, Associate Professor of Anthropology and Coordinator of Native American Research, University of MaineDeveloping a Climate Adaptation Baseline for Wabanaki Tribal Nations: Diplomacy, Research Methods and PrioritiesIn this talk, Dr. Ranco will discuss the climate adaptation priorities identified by the Wabanaki Tribal Nations (Penobscot, Passamaquoddy, Micmac, and Maliseet) in Maine based on a series of meetings with tribal and climate experts from 2015-2017. He will also detail best practices for doing climate change and adaptation research, many of which were used in the Tribally-led research used to identify Wabanaki climate adaptation priorities.
