NE CASC Webinars

Restoring Connecticut River Flow in a Changing Climate

March 27, 2019 - 12:00pm
Eastern Daylight Time

In order to better understand the Connecticut’ river flow regime and identify ways to better manage human uses, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and their partners developed a basin-wide hydrologic model and decision support tool. Kim Lutz will cover assessment and management recommendations for the Connecticut River watershed, the largest watershed in New England, covering 7.2 million acres.

Climate Adaptation Science for Coastal Habitats, Species, and Ecosystems

April 3, 2019 - 12:00pm
Eastern Daylight Time

In this talk, NE CASC Science Coordinator Michelle Staudinger will summarize recent advances by NE CASC researchers seeking to increase resilience and enhance adaptation planning in Atlantic coastal systems. Michelle will provide an in-depth perspective on the current state of knowledge of shifts in marine phenology in the Gulf of Maine.

Mapping Climate Change Refugia for Vernal Pools

May 1, 2019 - 12:00pm
Eastern Daylight Time

This talk will provide a preliminary assessment of the resistance of particular vernal pools to changes in climate. Vernal pools are small, seasonal wetlands that provide critically important seasonal habitat for many amphibian species of conservation concern. Natural resource managers and scientists in the Northeast identified vernal pools as a priority ecosystem to study, and highlight climate change and disease as primary threats to key vernal pool ecosystems.
