People & Planet Series: Addressing Climate Impacts by Monitoring Winter Changes

February 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


About the Event:

As winter transforms the landscapes of the Upper Midwest lakes region, an undeniable shift is underway leaving its mark on the iconic winter scenes that have long defined the region. 

Once predictable winter patterns are evolving, posing unique challenges – from shifting snowpack dynamics and fluctuating ice cover to the changes in seasonal precipitation. Monitoring change, such as temperature and precipitation, is essential for understanding and addressing the myriad impacts on both the environment and the communities within this snow-covered realm.

Join Jay Austin, Professor, Department of Physics and Astronomy and the Large Lakes Observatory, University of Minnesota – Duluth and Steve Shier, Climate Specialist, 1854 Treaty Authority for a discussion with Dr. Julie Etterson, Institute on the Environment – Duluth Director and Distinguished McKnight University Professor, Department of Biology, University of Minnesota – Duluth on how the noticeable effects of climate change around Lake Superior and the interior of the Ceded Territory’s region will impact communities and more.
