WEATHERING CHANGE: Local Solutions for Strong Communities is a webinar series presented by Antioch University New England, in partnership with the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). 

This webinar will review the potential impacts of a changing climate on wetland ecosystems, with a focus on the glaciated northeast. The presentation will review three types of wetlands: vernal pools, peatlands and tidal marshes with an eye to the vulnerability and potential resilience of such systems to the current and projected changes in temperature, precipitation and atmospheric carbon dioxide content. Response of these ecosystems to such disturbances will be considered through different spatial scales.
