MEAS Department Seminar

March 22 | 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Speaker - Claudia Benitez-Nelson, Distinguished Professor, University of South Carolina, School of the Earth, Ocean and Environment  Bio Seminar Title - Using Elemental Composition and Stoichiometry to Explore Marine Biogeochemical Cycles Abstract - The marine biogeochemical cycling of most elements is influenced by a complex array of interdependent reactions that vary with the surrounding environment. As such, focusing on a single element’s biogeochemistry precludes a global understanding of processes that range from toxin production to climate change. The goal of this talk is…

Geospatial Forum with Geri Miller

March 25 | 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

We have experienced a massive digital transformation and these new trends are powerful – cloud and analytics driven. The shift to cloud technology is changing our workforce needs, and geospatial education is changing as well. What are some of these changes, and what do they mean for skills of today’s graduates? What skills do we need, as students, to become change agents and leaders in the future workforce? Bio Geri Miller is Director of Education at Esri. Her main role…

MEAS Department Seminar

March 29 | 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Speaker - Kay McMonigal, MEAS, Atmospheric Sciences (host- S. Larson) Seminar Title - Convergent ocean heat transport drives recent Indian Ocean warming Abstract - Since 2000, the Indian Ocean has warmed more rapidly than the other ocean basin. This warming has climate impacts relevant for the one third of the human population living in Indian Ocean rim countries. We aim to understand the dynamics behind the recent warming, to better predict future warming patterns. Any change in ocean heat content over time is the…

MEAS Department Seminar

April 5 | 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Speaker - Robert Todd, WHOI (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution), host- Roy He Seminar Title - Gliders in the Gulf Stream: New insights from sustained observing Abstract - The Gulf Stream is a key part of the Earth's climate system, carrying heat poleward as part of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation. The swift, narrow current generally follows the continental margin from the Florida Strait to Cape Hatteras, NC, where it separates from the continental margin and becomes a free, meandering jet in the open North…

Geospatial Forum with Dr. Anders Huseth

April 8 | 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Landscape-scale intensification of individual crops and pesticide use that is associated with this change is a problem that has had unequal effects on pests with different lifecycles, host ranges, and dispersal abilities. Understanding the fundamental connections between agricultural intensification and pests remains a major obstacle to improving the long-term sustainability of modern agriculture. In this forum, we will discuss the linkages between insect communities, agricultural landscapes, and their management in support of sustainable agriculture and healthy agroecosystems. Bio Anders Huseth…

Speaker -  Russell Harmon, MEAS-Earth Science (host - E. Hyland) Seminar Title - Linking Silicate Weathering to Riverine Geochemistry – Case study from a mountainous tropical setting in west-central Panama Abstract - Comprising a diversity of common igneous and sedimentary lithologies, the landscape of Panama reflects its origin and evolution as an inter-oceanic island arc. This landscape developed and matured over the past 100 My as a consequence of tectonic interactions of the Caribbean, South American, Cocos, and Nazca plates that resulted…
