The participation of the CPOs Knauss Fellow Andrea Miralles-Barboza at COP27 in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt shows CPOs continued commitment to support the development of early career interdisciplinary climate professionals working at the interface of science and policy. Additionally, through her coordination in the Islands and International Partnerships event at the U.S. Center, Andrea highlighted CPOs important role in advancing international climate adaptation and resilience.
This webinar is part of a series spotlighting NOAA Climate & Global Change Postdoctoral Fellows and will feature current fellow and interdisciplinary scientist Dr. Katherine Siegel discussing relationships between land management, climate change, and wildfire in forests and rangelands in the western US.
This talk explores how increases in extreme heat events due to climate change may threaten the ability of the Eurasian boreal forests to continue to sequester carbon. Mukund Rao is a current C&GC fellow and ecoclimatologist who researches the interactions between climate change and natural and human ecosystems.
