Advancing Climate Science and Response for Caribbean Islands

With climate change expected to impact the Caribbean, in terms of extreme weather conditions,  researchers at the last Climate Modellers Meeting Consortium, in the areas of climate dynamics and modeling, meteorology, water, among others, hope to make strides in the field of climate science using data produced within the region.

Pastoralists rely on satellites to search for water

With the advancement of climate change, many countries suffer frequent and longer drought conditions.  Yet, technology and relevant tools are able to make a difference. For example, in the article linked below, from UN Environment , nomadic herders in Sahel rely on satellite imaging, together with, necessary partnerships, to make positive changes in the search for water.

Free Webinar – Stormwater Goes Green: The Benefit and Health of Trees in Green Stormwater Infrastructure

This webinar sponsored by Deep Root, will be presented by Post Doctoral Researcher Andrew Tirpak, from the University of Tennessee Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering on January 29th 2019.

Learning Objectives 
By participating in this webinar, attendees will:

  • Learn how the health of trees in bioretention practices compares to other urban trees and understand the design and environmental factors that are most influential to tree health in these systems
  • Discover the contributions trees provide to the hydrologic and pollutant removal performance of bioretention practices and how they vary among tree species
  • Gain exposure to, and understand the performance capabilities of, green infrastructure technologies designed to simultaneously manage urban runoff and promote tree health
  • Understand how bioretention design and meteorological parameters impact tree function in bioretention suspended pavement systems
