Thanks to Abraham Endalamaw and Till Baumann for organizing the Research Salon Series for the 2015–2016 academic year.
Seminars and Salon Series talks are listed below, most recent first.
Partnerships for Place-Based Problem Solving - July 25, 2017| 1:30pm, 401 Akasofu- For this seminar, Megan Godfrey and Sorina Seeley will discuss existing tensions that exist between managers and users, so that we are able to think more critically about what creates good relationships/partnerships and what needs to be addressed in order to obtain them. Locally-based participatory monitoring - May, 11, 2017 | 3pm, 401 Akasofu- This seminar will discuss expanding the scientific basis for how the world can monitor and manage natural resources. Arctic Research and Economic Diversification - Monday, March 27, 2017 | 3:00 pm, Globe Room (Elvey)- Visiting researchers Sei-Ichi Saitoh and Taro Osabe will discuss Arctic research being conducted at Hokkaido University and fish resources in the Pacific Arctic. Permafrost thaw and methane release from Arctic lakes - Friday, February 24, 2017| 9:30-10:30 am, 401 Akasofu- Katey Walter Anthony will present a relatively new discovery that permafrost thaw lakes have a natural process that mitigates greenhouse gas losses, and over the long term can lead to net climate cooling.
