How are snowshoe hare populations responding to a changing climate and predation increases? Check out a New Hampshire Wildlife Journal article and new ECCF blog post from NE CSC fellow Alexej Siren as he discusses his research investigating the population dynamics of boreal forest species and how changes to snowpack and climate may mediate these relationships.
NE CSC Affiliated Investigators Erika Lentz and Rob Thieler, of the USGS Coastal and Marine Science Center in Woods Hole, along with NE CSC PI, Radley Horton of Columbia University and co-authors have produced a comprehensive sea level rise study of the Northeast’s coasts incorporating the dynamic responses different coastlines are expected to have to changing conditions of land and ocean.
NE CSC Science Coordinator, Michelle Staudinger, and USGS Director, Mary Ratnaswamy met with scientists at the New England Aquarium (NEAq) in Boston to discuss shared priorities for addressing climate change impacts on coastal and marine species of conservation concern.
Climate change is rapidly warming lakes around the world, threatening freshwater supplies and ecosystems, according to a new study spanning six continents. More than 60 scientists took part in the research, including NE-CSC-funded investigator Jordan S. Read and NE CSC’s new Principal Investigator, Pete McIntyre.
Mark your calendars for an eight-webinar series this spring from the NE CSC, highlighting research from our funded projects, an early career showcase, and a featured presentation from Julio Betancourt from the USGS.
The Northeast Climate Science Center has awarded nearly $700,000 to universities and other partners for research to guide managers of parks, refuges and other cultural and natural resources in planning how to help species and ecosystems adapt to climate change.
The work of Ethan Coffel, NE CSC Graduate Fellow at Columbia University was featured in several news outlets following the American Geophysical Union (AGU) annual meeting in San Fransisco. By later this century, parts of the world where the population is expected to rise the most will experience an increase in the worst heat events —
On December 7th, the Acer Climate and Socio-Ecological Research Network (ACERnet) held a workshop on “Sugar Maple in a Changing Climate” at the Northeast Climate Science Center with 20 partners present at UMass Amherst and up to 20 participants joining remotely.
As a Graduate Fellow with the NE CSC, Paul Damkot studies how brook trout are affected by and adapt to climate change. As air temperatures warm, so do water temperatures. Brook trout are a coldwater species
A coalition of research institutions, including the the University of Massachusetts Amherst, the state’s fish and wildlife agency, and the Northeast Climate Science Center this week unveiled a new online tool
DURHAM, NH - Even if you are nowhere near ice-cold Hubbard Brook in the rugged White Mountains of New Hampshire, you can tune into the water cycle with Waterviz, an online tool partially funded by the Northeast Climate Science Center that creates digital art and plays a live forest symphony generated from environmental sensors placed in a mountain valley.
Whose research are you going to rely on when making important decisions in the face of climate change? Jimmy Nelson’s! This Northeast Climate Science Center recent fellow does a lot of work behind the scenes, but his research on salt marshes is vital to many systems,
Meaghan Guckian, of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst reflects on her experience at the 3rd Annual NE CSC Fellows Retreat (hosted by the College of Menominee Nation), the foundation of strong stakeholder relationships, and the potential power in merging local knowledge with scientific information.
Toni Lyn Morelli, USGS Research Ecologist at the NE CSC, is working to tease apart mechanisms causing ecological changes in northeastern U.S. mountains. The White Mountains of New Hampshire offer some of the most breathtaking views in the Eastern United States.
