SUNY Conversation in the Disciplines: Resiliency of the Great Lakes to Climate & Storms
Campus Calendar

Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - Thursday, May 23, 2013
12:00 pm - 12:00 pm
Gatway Center, SUNY-ESF

Event Description:

New York's great lakes ecosystems are entering a period of change. Stressors range from natural events due to changes in the global climate, changing precipitation patterns, and variations in ice cover, to human-moderated events such as changes in Lake level. Understanding how the ecosystem services provided by Lake Ontario are affected by such changes is a key challenge for climate change scientists, lake ecologists, land use planners and regulatory agencies alike.


The purpose of this conference is to understand how New York's Great lakes ecosystem (terrestrial, littoral and pelagic) will respond to storm and climate events. This is truly an interdisciplinary question, requiring scholarly contributions in meteorology, lake ecology, physical limnology, shoreline engineering processes and coastal design and planning of the human environment. This topic is especially apropos at this time given the proposed IJC changes in lake level management and the continuing academic discussions on the impact of climate change on large lake ecosystems. However we feel this topic will also draw scientists from SUNY campuses not directly connected with Great Lakes but with interests in marine coastal services issues as many of the topics are applicable to terrestrial, marine and freshwater systems.
