The Water Institute is pleased to announce the next seminar in the
2007-2008 Smallwood Distinguished Scholar Seminar Series

 

 

December 6-7, 2007 
Charles Vorosmarty, Research Professor, Water Systems Analysis Group,
Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space, University of New
Hampshire <http://www.unh.edu/esci/vorosmarty.html>  
Seminar Title: "The Science of Global Hydrology: Lessons from the U.S.
Northeast Corridor" 
Time: 3:00 pm Thursday December 6, 2007 
Location: Room 282 Reitz Union

 

Abstract:  The water cycle figures prominently in the study of global
change and creates an important integrating theme for current and future
studies of the Earth system. In addition to greenhouse warming and
concerns about an accelerated hydrologic cycle, several other
anthropogenic factors interact with the water cycle directly and modify
the physics, chemistry, biology, and social systems associated with
fresh water. Prominent among these factors are widespread land cover
change, urbanization, industrial activities, plus a host of hydraulic
engineering schemes that optimize water resource access and use,
including dam and reservoir construction, irrigated agriculture, and
interbasin transfers. These factors yield a broad spectrum of impact,
distorting natural river flow and thermal regimes, polluting fresh
water, destroying aquatic habitat, and creating substantial challenges
to the sustainability of inland aquatic ecosystems. A rich history of
research at the local scale already demonstrates these impacts clearly.
Evidence now shows that humans are rapidly embedding themselves into the
basic character of the water cycle over much broader domains, yet the
collective significance of such a transformation of a basic building
block in the Earth system remains an open question. This presentation
will provide a broad overview of the nature of these new challenges,
both from a scientific and technological point of view. A focus will be
on the U.S. Northeast and how it is emblematic of changes that are
taking place worldwide. The talk will offer a brief summary of two new
efforts designed to monitor and assess the state of regional
hydro-systems, and linked upland and coastal ecosystems - the UNH Earth
Systems Data Collaborative and CUAHSI Pilot Hydrologic Synthesis
Studies.

 

Dr. Vorosmarty is available to meet with interested faculty and students
on Friday Morning, please contact Wendy Graham ([log in to unmask]) if you
are interested.

 

Please pass this information on to potentially interested students and
colleagues!

 

Thanks!

 

Wendy
