Taking the Pulse Of a Changing Planet-Lecture

Part of the 2019 Fall Conservation Lectures.   Presented by Dr. Robert Spencer, Ph.D- FSU Oceanography.  7 pm Free & open to the public with refreshments available before the lecture.

In recent years rivers have become seen as important players in the global carbon cycle as well as integrators of processes within their watershed. Using recent advances in organic geochemistry we will highlight research focused on globally significant vulnerable organic carbon pools (e.g. Arctic permafrost and tropical forest ecosystems) and how riverine chemistry can provide important insights into the changing global carbon cycle. Examples will come from across the Planet - from Siberia to the Congo and from the Amazon to Wakulla Springs. Speaker Bio: Dr. Spencer examines the the carbon cycle in aquatic environments and aims to project how human impacts, particularly on land, impact downstream ecosystems.
