Geospatial Forum with Dr. Christopher Osburn
The world is getting hotter and in many cases wetter. Impacts on coastal carbon cycling are becoming realized yet our ability to model these processes remain in their early stages. Knowledge gained from specific case studies will form a basis for considering pulses of extreme events occurring amongst the presses of land use change and sea level rise. With implications for regional to global climate and for coastal water quality, this talk will present a 10-year research perspective on coastal carbon and nitrogen biogeochemistry in North Carolina viewed through the lens of extreme weather events in a geospatial context.
