Northeast Climate Science Center Seminar Series: Webinar
March 8, 2017
Morrill Science Center
UMass Amherst Campus
Alex Bryan of the USGS and the NE CSC will talk about “A Sticky Situation: When Maple Syrup Producers Receive Conflicting Guidance from Different Climate Models.” This is a part of “Engaging Stakeholders in Climate Adaptation,” a webinar series presented by the Northeast Climate Science Center.
Alex Bryan is a Climate Assessments and Scenario Planning (CLASP) Postdoctoral Fellow with the Northeast Climate Science Center and the USGS. After earning a degree in meteorology at Valparaiso University in Indiana, Alex pursued his doctorate at the University of Michigan, where he explored atmospheric interactions with vegetation in climate and atmospheric chemistry models. With the NE CSC, Alex provides guidance on climate assessments and scenarios to help partners and stakeholders of the Center make informed decisions toward climate change adaptation. Such guidance ranges from climate model selection to translating output to environmental response. As part of this work, Alex is exploring the utility of downscaled regional climate models for climate change adaptation in the northeast region.
