Climate Change

Climate change is an overarching theme of many AGS projects. For example, we’re working on integrating land-use scenarios into climate models to better understand the links between human activity effects climate change, we’re mapping high-latitude methane emissions to track areas with high concentrations of this powerful greenhouse gas, and we’re exploring how temperature and hydroperiod changes influence the spread of Lyme disease and bird flu. Whatever the topic, we focus on obtaining complex measurements and transforming that data into useful, easy-to-use information.
