Stephanie Dutkiewicz Principal Research Scientist Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences Massachusetts Institute of Technology https://eapsweb.mit.edu/people/stephdut Phytoplankton play key roles as the base of the marine food web and as a crucial component in the earth’s carbon cycle. Changes to sea temperatures, increased stratification, and decreasing pH are just some environmental stressors that are and will continue to impact plankton communities and productivity. However, these changes are complex, regionally variable, and signatures of the trends may take many decades to be detected. In this talk I will use a complex physical-biogeochemical-ecosystem model of the global ocean to examine the possible changes to the marine ecosystem over the course of the twenty-first century. We will examine how changes to temperatures, nutrient supplies, and ocean acidification will work separately and together to alter productivity and the phytoplankton communities. We will also explore our ability to detect these changes from in situ and remote observations. Our model results suggest that by 2100, only about 50% of the ocean will show a statistically significant trend in productivity or Chl-a concentrations; a consequence of strong natural variability. On the other hand, we find that almost 75% of the ocean has a statistically significant trend in remotely sensed reflectance by 2100. This is because reflectance integrates the changes in all the optically important constituents in the ocean including the shifts in phytoplankton community structure.

The Sustainable Development Capstone Workshop in conjunction with the Earth Institute will host a panel discussion at Columbia University on Thursday, May 4, 2017. Register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/collaborating-for-change-a-new-vision-of-climate-adaptation-tickets-33013829252. The panel will bring together a range of experts working within the field of climate adaptation in order to showcase the diversity of work on this topic. The event will provide an opportunity to identify and discuss the most pressing issues pertaining to climate adaptation and to devise collaborative, interdisciplinary solutions. The discussion will be moderated by award-winning environmental journalist Andrew Revkin. As a reporter for the New York Times, Revkin wrote Dot Earth, an environmental blog examining the environmental impacts of human activity. Revkin currently works as the senior reporter for climate and related issues at ProPublica. Panelists: Adela Gondek, Professor in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Biology at Columbia University, specializing in environmental ethics J.C. Salyer, Lawyer and Professor of Anthropology and Sociology at Barnard College Shaun Martin, Senior Director, Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience for the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Peter Marcotullio, Director of the CUNY Institute for Sustainable Cities and Professor of Urban Planning at Columbia University Additional remarks will be made by Thomas Friedman, Pulitzer Prize-winning NY Times columnist, best selling author and contributor to the hit documentary series "Years of Living Dangerously."

The Earth Institute's International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI) presents its monthly climate forecast briefing. The briefing, delivered by the IRI's Chief Climate Forecaster Tony Barnston, explains the upcoming IRI ENSO forecast and seasonal climate (precipitation, temperature) forecast. Tony will also discuss the implications of the forecast on society around the globe, and the probabilities and skills of the current forecast.
