The 2018 Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union happens in Washington, DC this year. 4 current lab members will be presenting their work – come visit for new and exciting land-atmosphere interactions work!
Abby Swann – Monday, Dec. 10th, 10:20 am, 147B
GC12C-01: Quantifying the role that terrestrial ecosystems play in Earth’s climate (Invited)
Abby will give a talk discussion how changes in plant distribution and functioning can modify climate, with implications for remote ecosystems.
Marysa Laguë – Monday, Dec 10th, 10:20 am, 146C
H12B-01: Evaluating the climate impact of different land-surface properties: separating the role of atmospheric feedbacks from surface-driven changes (Invited)
Marysa will give a talk exploring how to quantify how much of the change in surface climate resulting from changes in land properties (e.g. albedo) comes from feedbacks with the atmosphere (e.g. changes in cloud cover).
Jinhyuk Kim – Monday, Dec 19th, 13:40-18:00, Hall A-C (Poster Hall)
H13H-1830: Evaporative Resistance Equally Important as Albedo in High Latitudes Due to Cloud Feedbacks
Jin will be presenting a poster on his research exploring the relative importance of changes in albedo vs. evaporative resistance associated with Arctic vegetation change in controlling Arctic climate.
Abby Swann – Wednesday, Dec 12th, 16;15-16:30
B34A-02: Continental-scale consequences of tree die-offs in North America (Invited)
Abby will talk about the impacts on remote ecosystems across North America when individual NEON eco-regions are deforested (read the article in ERL).
Jennifer Hsiao – Thursday, Dec 19th, 08:00-12:00, Hall A-C (Poster Hall)
GC41D-1478: Maize Yield Under a Changing Climate: the Hidden Role of Vapor Pressure Deficit
Jennifer will be presenting a poster on her work to separate the individual effects of temperature, vapor pressure deficit (VPD), and CO2 on maize. Each of these is projected to change going into the future, but each effects different physiological mechanisms in plants.
