EarthTalks looks to past geology, climate to predict landscape response

March 24, 2020

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Predicting how landscapes will respond to a changing climate and human activities can help scientists and decision-makers assess natural hazard and pollution risks. How landscapes respond, however, varies based on geology, climate and land use history. Roman DiBiase, assistant professor of geosciences, will discuss how geologic history influenced landscape response to climate change during the last ice age, and how it influences the resilience of watersheds to human land use changes at the next EarthTalks seminar.

The seminar will be held at 4 p.m. Monday, March 30, and broadcast through Zoom at the following link: https://psu.zoom.us/j/594342606. The talk is free and open to the public.

Roman DiBiase, assistant professor of geosciences at Penn State.

DiBiase’s presentation is part of the spring 2020 EarthTalks series, "Societal Problems, EESI Science towards Solutions." The series features scientists from Penn State’s Earth and Environmental Systems Institute (EESI) and explores the human impacts on the global environment and how to apply this knowledge to decision-making. The series runs every Monday through April 27.

The spring 2020 EarthTalks series is supported by the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute.
