The Northeast's Paraglacial Shore and Its First Order Control on the Future Resilience of Coupled Beach/Marsh Systems

September 15, 2021 - 4:00pm

The importance of external sediment supply to both beaches and marshes has long been recognized. In the Northeastern US glacial deposits serve as the predominant sediment source for shorelines extending from New York City to the Maine/Canadian border. In this talk we present active research on the spatial distribution and characteristics of these paraglacial deposits and their first order control on both the current and future integrity of coupled marsh-beach systems.

Increasing the Resilience and Resistance of Climate-Vulnerable Species and Ecosystems

October 13, 2021 - 4:00pm

Drs. Morelli and Nislow will provide an update on their work for this NE CASC project. A description and updated title for this webinar will be available later this summer.

Refugia are important but are they connected? Mapping well-connected climate refugia for species of conservation concern in the Northeastern U.S.

November 17, 2021 - 4:00pm

As the climate continues to change, vulnerable wildlife species will need specific management strategies to help them adapt to these changes. One such strategy focuses on the concept of refugia, areas that are buffered from the impacts of climate change and therefore remain suitable habitats for vulnerable species over time. Refugia stand in contrast to other habitats, which are impacted by climate change and may become unsuitable for vulnerable species.
