BioEarth Webinar Series: Reporting on five years of climate impacts & nutrient dynamics research in the Northwest US

Posted by Liz Allen | November 30, 2016

WSU’s BioEarth research team is hosting a webinar series in collaboration with the Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources. The BioEarth project has sought to model biogeochemical cycles in a changing climate at the regional scale. Researchers will share their findings related to climate change impacts on Northwest US water resources, nutrient cycling, and managed and natural ecosystems. Webinars will focus on implications of research results for natural and agricultural resource management decisions. Details about the webinar series are available here.

The first webinar in the four-part series will cover sources and impacts of atmospheric nitrogen deposition, and will be held on Tuesday December 13 at 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern. This webinar’s two speakers are recent PhD graduates of WSU’s School of Biological Sciences. Sarah Anderson will present on the topic of changes in nitrogen deposition over time, exploring what lichen sampling can tell us about nitrogen deposition from industrial and agricultural sources over time. Justin Poinsatte will discuss impacts of nitrogen deposition in subalpine ecosystems, describing modeling and field research in subalpine vegetation communities and snowfields of the Northwest.
