How much stress is to much?

Naomi Tague was invited to lead a session at the International Symposium – BOUNDAR​Y SPANNING: Advances in Socio-Environmental Systems Research – put on by The ​National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) in partnership with the National Science Foundation (NSF), Resources for the Future (RFF), and University of Maryland (UMD) this week in Annapolis, Maryland. Naomi brought together Tamma Carleton (UCBerkeley) “Valuing the global mortality consequences of climate change accounting for adaptation costs and benefits”, Adrian Das (US Geological Survey) “Tree Mortality and the California Drought: A preview of the future?”, Alex de Sherbinin (Columbia) “Migration as an adaptive response to climate change impacts and vulnerability”, Ariel Lugo (US Forest Service) “Who responds the quickest after hurricane wind stress: the social or the ecological systems?”, and Max Moritz (UC Santa Barbara) “When does fire, a natural ecological disturbance, become ‘stressful’?” in her session “Under Stress: For adaptive, evolving systems, how much stress is too much?”.

Lab members present at Fire Prediction Conference

Last week, Tague Team Lab members Erin Hanan and Ryan Bart presented their research at the 2017 Conference on Fire Prediction Across Scales, a Columbia University Initiative on Extreme Weather and Climate event.

Bart’s presentation: Development of a coupled model for investigating the effects of forest management and climate on wildfire regimes in the western U.S.

Hanan’s presentation: Effects of fire suppression and climate change on wildfire activity in the Pacific Northwest

Hanan’s poster: Using remote sensing to account for disturbance history in process-based, carbon cycling models

Critical Zone Observatory Annual Meeting

This week many of our lab group attended the Sierra Critical Zone Observatory Annual Meeting in at the Center Sierra Historical Society near Shaver Lake. We spent the day in science meetings and camped by Shaver Lake at night. From our group, Ryan Bart presented on the new fire effect model that he has developed as part of our SERI-Fire project. Ethan on his Entering Wildfire work and the design for new visualization of RHESSys output. Chris Heckman’s poster linked water use and storage for sites across the CZO network.

 

Hanan invited talk

Dr. Erin Hanan gave the invited talk “Nitrogen cycling and export in California chaparral: the role of climate in shaping ecosystem responses to fire” at the Natural Areas Conference: Climate Change Adaptation and Natural Areas Management: Turning Words to Action, held at UC Davis Oct. 19 – 21, 2016.

Tague Presentation at Conference on Forest Fire

Dr. Tague presented “Modeling the complex interactions among wildfire, fuel treatments and hydrology” at the 10th EARSeL Forest Fire Special Interest Group Workshop held Novemeber 2-5 in Limassol, Cyprus.
