UCC Climate CoLab 2017 Seminar Series

UCC Climate CoLab Smeinar Series. Creating a warmer world: Insights into terrestrial and coastal wetland ecosystem warming experiments

The future sink strength and carbon stock stability of coastal wetlands is uncertain because global change drivers such as temperature and elevated CO2 perturb the complex biotic and abiotic feedbacks that drive high rates of soil carbon sequestration. In this seminar Dr Roy Rich will give an overview of the experimental design, evolution, and limitations of feedback-controlled warming manipulations through three recent experiments including forest (B4WarmED), prairie (TeRaCON), and tidal wetland (SI-GCREW) ecosystems. He will also present an overview of results from these projects and discuss upcoming project on the Wadden Sea in Germany. Dr Roy Rich is a researcher at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center carrying out studies on the impacts of climate change and disturbance at individual, community, ecosystem, and landscape scales. This is a free event organized by UCC Climate CoLab, ERI and School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences. All are welcome. For further details please contact Dr Grace Cott at
