Videos from SESYNC's People, Land, and Ecosystems: Leveraging NEON for Socio-Environmental Synthesis Workshop are now available!
What are socio-environmental systems, what is synthesis, and how does one conduct synthesis research? In this three-part video series, we address those questions and provide examples that highlight the complexity and rewards of studying the relationships and dynamics between social and environmental systems.
SESYNC Invites Proposals for Collaborative & Interdisciplinary Team-Based Research Projects
The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) requests proposals for collaborative and interdisciplinary team-based research projects under two programs: Pursuits and Workshops.
ANNAPOLIS —Humans may be the dominant cause of global temperature rise, but they may also be a crucial factor in helping to reduce it, according to a new study that for the first time builds a novel model to measure the effects of behavior on climate.
Drawing from both social psychology and climate science, the new model investigates how human behavioral changes evolve in response to extreme climate events and affect global temperature change.
