"Winter Weather Whiplash: Developing Indices of Extreme Winter Weather Variability and Socio-Ecological Responses"
This is a closed meeting for a funded group of visiting scholars.
The goal of the proposed Pursuit is to use northeastern North America as a test bed for developing a suite of winter weather whiplash indices and associated physical, ecological, biogeochemical, and socioeconomic response metrics to determine the extent to which winter weather whiplash events have cascading impacts on ecosystems and their services. This Pursuit will assemble a diverse and interdisciplinary group of collaborators from private and public institutions across the United States and Canada to devise a novel understanding of how past and future winter climate change will broadly impact coupled natural human systems in seasonally snow covered areas globally.
