Earth Lab EDS Seminar

Earth Lab EDS Seminar

Are you looking to broaden your perspectives in Earth and environmental data science? Are you excited to collaborate with others and hear about new developments in this area?

Topics must be about using *big data* to advance knowledge of the dynamics and interactions of the Earth system, towards actionable insights and tools

Starting Spring 2022, Earth Lab will be hosting a regular weekly 50-min seminar series on topics related to Environmental Data Science (EDS) that uses big data to advance knowledge of the dynamics and interactions of the Earth systems, towards actionable insights and tools.

These weekly sessions are intended to inspire collaboraitons and creative problem solving using data and analytics for a broad range of environmental science topics. Each week will be led by someone and can take on many forms: data jams, ractice conference talks (15 min) w/ Q&A, paper Discussions, brainstorming, 30 min lecture, other. 

Purpose: To reignite collaborations by inspiring creative problem solving by sharing the many interesting projects and work that Earth Lab and affiliates have been doing to advance the use of data for environmental challenges. 
 
Who: Earth Lab affiliates, CU affiliates, and other interested parties are invited to attend.
When: Tuesdays 11:00-11:50 AM (MST) beginning on 1/18/22
Where: Remote (Zoom and VizStudio).
What: View the schedule of events here.  
Why: We wish to reinvigorate the Earth Lab community and facilitate collaborative interactions that have been challenging during extended work-from-home time.
 
To receive weekly announcements and reminders about future talks, SIGN UP HERE to be added to our listserv. 
 
Also attached is a recurring calendar invite. This is a series invite, if you ever plan to attend, please “tentatively accept” and decline individual events once this is saved to your calendar. 

This week's topic: Habitat fragmentation, livelihood behaviors, and contact between people and nonhuman primates in Africa presented by Tyler McIntosh - Earth Lab

NC CASC Webinar Series: Identifying Potential Landscapes for Conservation Across the Central Grasslands of North America: Integrating Keystone Species, Land Use, and Climate Change

NC CASC Webinar Series: Identifying Potential Landscapes for Conservation Across the Central Grasslands of North America: Integrating Keystone Species, Land Use, and Climate Change

Presented by: Ana Davidson, Colorado Natural Heritage Program, Colorado State University

When: Thursday, May 12, 2022, 11a -12p MDT

Please register in advance for this meeting: https://cuboulder.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJEodeyhrTMpGdVrVGZ622sNwK_vf8vOq9Kw.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about how to join the meeting.

Abstract: Our team is developing a large-scale collaborative conservation planning initiative for the black-tailed prairie dog ecosystem that stretches across North America’s Great Plains. Because prairie dogs are keystone species of North America’s central grasslands, their conservation and management often lies at the core of many conservation efforts across the region. Through mapping and ecological modelling, we are working to identify potential landscapes for conservation that will consider ecological, political, and social factors, along with changing climate and land use to maximize long-term conservation potential and co-existence with human activities. Here, we will report on our habitat suitability model for the black-tailed prairie dog and landscapes we have identified to have high conservation potential for the black-tailed prairie dog ecosystem.

About the speaker: Dr. Ana Davidson is a Research Scientist at the Colorado Natural Heritage Program at Colorado State University (CSU) and a Joint Faculty member in the Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology at CSU. Her research centers on biodiversity conservation, spanning multiple scales, from local field-based ecology to landscape ecology and global-scale macroecology. Much of her work focuses on species that play large and important ecological roles, such as burrowing mammals and large herbivores, that shape and transform ecosystems and are central to the conservation of associated species.

CIRES Rendezvous 2022

CIRES Rendezvous 2022

The CIRES Members' Council is pleased to announce the 17th annual CIRES Rendezvous. This institute-wide symposium will take place on Friday, May 13, 2022 with the aim of bringing awareness to the depth, breadth, and quality of the pacesetting science being done at CIRES. We hope to encourage collaborations that might result in new interdisciplinary research, and to facilitate connections among our many innovative scientists, science support staff, and administrative staff. (Rendezvous is currently scheduled as an in-person event! If this changes, we will update this page)

This half-day event includes an entire afternoon devoted to CIRES science and poster presentations; we encourage you to participate and present your research here. We are happy for you to present posters that may have been used previously at AMS, AGU, ACS, or other meetings. Of course, you are also free to develop a new poster or present new work.

For more information, schedule, poster submission, etc: https://ciresevents.colorado.edu/rendezvous/

ANYL PhD Defense: Role of Oxidative Conditions on the Formation of Aerosol and Organic Nitrates from the Reactions of Monoterpenes with NO3 and OH radicals

Marla DeVault,
Ziemann group

"Monoterpenes are widely emitted biogenic volatile organic compounds, which react quickly in the atmosphere and the oxidized products of which can partition into secondary organic aerosol (SOA). Understanding the types of products that are formed, how they might react in the particle-phase, and the effect of oxidative conditions on these factors are key for improving atmospheric models. Specifically, we are interested in the formation of organic nitrates and their impact on SOA. In order to study this, five monoterpenes were oxidized by NO3 radicals, to simulate nighttime conditions, and OH radicals in the presence of NOx, to simulate daytime conditions. The SOA collected from these ten reactions show a prevalence of acetal and hemiacetal dimers and trimers for NO3 radical oxidation for cyclic monoterpenes, which are notably absent from the OH/NOx oxidized SOA. This talk explores what mechanistic processes lead to this and other differences in particle-phase organic nitrates derived from these two reactions. "

Reflections on COP26 from a Climate Scientist and Geographer with Dr. Mark Serreze

Abstract: COP26, the 26th UN Climate Change Conference, was held in Glasgow, Scotland in autumn 2021. COP stands for Conference of the Parties, the 197 nations that agreed to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in 1992.  It was the first COP since the Paris Agreement of COP21 that parties were expected to strengthen commitments to mitigate climate change.  As a University of Colorado Boulder representative, I and several colleagues had a front row seat to observe the COP process and the activities surrounding the event.  COP26 was a mixed success in terms of commitments. But the event itself, in the midst of the Covid pandemic, with its sea of observers, delegates, NGOs and other interest groups, industry, and protesters from nations and cultures spanning the world, made me realized both how diverse, and how small, our planet really is.    

Bio: Mark C.  Serreze is Director of the National Snow and Ice Data center (NSIDC) at the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) and Professor in the Department of Geography, University of Colorado Boulder
