Spring 2016 Environmental Science Colloquium

With some of the longest climate records in the Northeast the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) and partners have been examining how climate is changing at upper elevations in the Northern Appalachians. While most locations have positive seasonal temperature trends, elevation-dependent difference have been observed. This, in combination with AMC’s more recent mountain plant phenology observations, provides insight into the physical and biological changes happening in New Hampshire’s mountains in response to human-driven climate change.

Please join us for the Spring 2016 Environmental Science Colloquium. The Colloquium series is for students, faculty, and the public. All are invited to come hear the latest on environmental research and topics of interest to our region.

  • Wednesday, March 23 at 4 p.m.
  • Boyd Science Center, Room 001
  • Speaker: Georgia Murray, staff scientist at the Appalachian Mountain Club

Managing New Hampshire’s Water for a More Resilient Environment

Each year, this popular event addresses current issues around our water resources and watersheds. Our watersheds are regularly exposed to a variety of disturbances, both of natural and human causes. Some disturbances are happening more frequently and often are of larger magnitude. The 2016 conference, on Friday, March 18, will focus on the concept of resiliency, or the ability of our natural watersheds and water systems, and built infrastructure, to respond to and recover from disturbances.
The event is at capacity, but if you would like to be added to the contact list, please complete our Contact Form.

Patterns of Macroinvertebrate Abundance and Diversity in a Headwaters Stream in Coos County
Presented by Brigid O’Donnell, PSU Department of Biological Sciences

This study is an ongoing investigation of the spatial and temporal variation in macroinvertebrates across Johnson Brook in Nash Stream Forest (Coos County, NH). The aim of this work is to document shifts in macroinvertebrate communities over heterogeneous habitats along the length of this headwaters stream and following habitat manipulation to create Brook trout habitat.

Safe and Free? The Case Against a Civil Liberties Tradeoff

Devon Chafee from the NH Civil Liberties Union will be unpacking the assumption that the goals of advancing civil liberties and protecting national security are necessarily counter-balanced. Focusing on US counterterrorism efforts in the aftermath of the attacks of September 11, 2001, Chaffee will address the costs and effectiveness of federal national security policies that implicate individual rights.

Devon Chaffee is the executive director of the New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union and is the former legislative counsel to the American Civil Liberties Union in Washington, DC.
