by Kathleen McCoy |
Fifteen UAA Environment and Natural Resources Institute (ENRI) faculty fellows, research scientists and graduate student researchers provided 22 presentations at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting 2011 in San Francisco, Calif., this past week. The AGU fall meeting is the largest conference of Earth and space scientists from around the world.
ENRI researchers presented their research discoveries and discussed their scientific findings with more than 20,000 of the world's leading scientists.
- ENRI postdoctoral fellow Dr. Adam Csank showcased his research findings from northwest Greenland, which indicate that there is seasonal variation in the source and age of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) and particulate organic carbon (POC).
- ENRI research scientist Dr. Patrick Sullivan gave and participated in several oral presentations highlighting research findings from his work on treeline shifts in Arctic Alaska and factors affecting the Arctic carbon cycle.
- ENRI faculty fellow and professor of biological sciences Dr. Bjartmar Sveinbjörnsson presented research findings which help to explain why treelines are expanding north in latitude and upward in elevation.
- ENRI research scientist Dr. Birgit Hagedorn presented research findings from studies of the Greenland Ice Sheet and the ground ice in Beacon Valley, Antarctica.
