Coastal Wetlands in a Changing World: The Future of Salt Marsh Ecosystems

March 29, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Coastal salt marshes are highly productive systems that provide numerous ecosystems services but are increasingly threatened by climate change and land use change. The fate of tidal wetlands is controlled by geomorphic feedbacks between sea-level rise, plant productivity, organic matter respiration, and sediment availability that together determine rates of mineral and organic matter accretion and, ultimately, whether these systems persist. In this talk, I will present on-going research at the Plum Island Ecosystems LTER assessing consequences of how increased marsh…

Someone in Texas didn’t water their backyard & caused a drought in New England?

April 5, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Land surface moisture plays a crucial role in precipitation patterns across the globe. Evapotranspiration (the combination of ground evaporation, canopy evaporation, and transpiration) from the land surface can influence precipitation through local recycling and the propagation of moisture to downwind regions. This talk will provide an overview of how the North American land surface modulates precipitation. The connection between land surface moisture and drought episodes are also examined for different regions of North America. Tyler Harrington is a graduate student…
