Climate Change

Researchers in DEES are interested in how environmental change impacts the earth’s surface and its inhabitants. Several projects conducted in DEES are directly related to questions related to the causes and impacts of climate change. These range from improving detection of past climate records in ice cores to directly assessing the impacts of changes in global temperature on water CO2 exchange between the atmosphere and terrestrial ecosystems. Several studies are ongoing assessing the potential impacts of climate change on water availability in Nevada. Finally, researchers in DEES are active in educating high school students and teachers as well as the general public about climate change.
