New Perspectives on Biogeochemical Cycles and Human Impacts On Our Planet

New Perspectives on Biogeochemical Cycles and Human Impacts On Our Planet - William H. Schlesinger, President of the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies

Monday, September 24, 2012
4:00pm-5:30pm
Life Sciences Center, Room 100
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Lectures & Seminars

Dr. Schlesinger will provide some new ways of examining global biogeochemical cycles and assessing human impact on the cycles of important biogeochemical elements. He will focus on the ongoing, major impact to the cycles of carbon and nitrogen, and what we have learned by large-scale long-term field experiments.

 

Dr. Schlesinger was among the first to quantify the amount of carbon held in soil organic matter globally, providing subsequent estimates of the role of soils and human impacts on forest and soils in global climate change.

 

Sponsored by IGERT Dialogues in Polar Science, Engineering, and Society Seminar Series and the Institute of Arctic Studies at the Dickey Center.
