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.

An unprecedented 22.43 inches of rain was recorded at Pinkham Notch, NH, on 14 days in mid-March 1936. The rain combined to release more than 30 inches of rainfall and melted snow into frozen catchments and ice-laden rivers.

This investigation uses the 20th Century Reanalysis dataset and higher-resolution Weather Research and Forecasting model data in order to recreate the meteorological conditions that led to this record rainfall and historic flooding.

Sex. Religion. Pizza. This is the second of six lunchtime discussions examining the intersections of sexuality and spirituality. Held on the first and last Wednesdays of the month, each session will feature a different speaker from the LGBTQ+ community describing their spiritual journey, sexual identity, and how the two have informed and shaped each other. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion as we explore the historical alienation of LGBTQ+ people from some faith traditions, and the need for dialogue, reconciliation, and inclusive, affirming communities. All are welcome! More information here
