Just when everything seems perfect a horrible prank unleashes Carrie’s telekinetic powers on her high school classmates and teachers, destroying all. Carrie has a book by Lawrence D. Cohen, lyrics by Dean Pitchford, and music by Michael Gore.

Boyd Science Center, Room 001

The Center for the Environment invites the campus community to attend an Environmental Science Colloquium: "Uncertainties in Detecting Decadal Change in Soil Carbon and Extractable Elements in Northern Forests," presented by Olivia Bartlett, Department of Social Science, Plymouth State University & PhD candidate, Natural Resources and Earth System Sciences, University of New Hampshire.

Northern Forest ecosystems have been or are being impacted by land use change, forest harvesting, acid deposition, atmospheric CO2 enrichment, and climate change. Each of these has the potential to modify soil forming processes, and the resulting chemical stocks. Horizontal and vertical variations in concentrations complicate determination of temporal change. This study evaluates sample design, sample size, and differences among observers as sources of uncertainty when quantifying soil temporal change over regional scales. Forty permanent monitoring plots were established on the White Mountain National Forest in central New Hampshire and western Maine. Soil pits were characterized and sampled by genetic horizon at plot center in 2001 and resampled again in 2014 two-meters on contour from the original sampling location. Laboratory analyses for both sampling years included pH in 0.01 M CaCl2 solution and extractable Ca, Mg, Na, K, Al, Mn, and P in 1 M NH4OAc solution buffered at pH 4.8. The results from this study suggest that resampling efforts within a site, repeated across a region, to quantify elemental change by genetic horizon is an appropriate method of detecting soil temporal change in this region. Sample size and design considerations from this project will have direct implications in determining the number of sites and methods of sampling for designing future monitoring programs to characterize change in soil elements.

"Snow Bound: The Making of an Artist's Book," presented by Laurie Whitehill.
Wednesday, October 5, 11:15 - 12:15
Museum of the White Mountains, 34 Highland Street, Plymouth

In September of 1915, the artist’s grandparents and a few other hikers were stranded by a severe storm in the newly opened Lake-of-the-Clouds hut, located just below the summit of Mt. Washington. Enduring bitter cold, scant food, and no way to communicate with the outside world, they were trapped for 5 days. This book retells their survival story with a focus on the female perspective of her grandmother. The artist will give a presentation on the making of her book, with anecdotes and visuals from her research and writing, the creation and hand printing of the illustrations and text, and the final hand binding of a small edition. A copy of this book resides in the collections of the museum.
