ENST Brown Bag: What Does it Mean When the Arctic Turns Green(er)?
Jeffrey T. Kerby, Marie Skłodawska Curie COFUND Jr. Fellow, Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies, Aarhus University & Visiting Fellow, Institute for Arctic Studies, Dartmouth College Presents: What does it mean when the Arctic turns green(er)?
Across the Arctic tundra biome, vegetation is responding to rapid warming, and satellite measures indicate widespread greening. Among the most important large-scale ecological responses to global change, this ‘Greening of the Arctic’ reflects, and at times masks, a diverse suite of ecological dynamics. In this seminar, I will blend photo narrative and traditional scientific presentation style to explore what we know about the ecological dynamics that underpin Arctic Greening. I will discuss how this is influenced by scale, and how scientific photography from drones and time-lapse cameras can pair with existing field approaches to address key questions about how climate change will impact this fragile, beautiful, and carbon-critical region.
