Dr. Mark Williams presents Water: A Zero-Sum Game.
Fellow at the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research and Professor of Geography, at CU, Dr. Williams’ research interest is the ecology of mountain areas, looking at the interaction of organisms with their environment, focusing on classical environmental variables such as soil, rocks, and minerals as well as surrounding water sources and the local atmosphere. Mark has current or past research activities in many of the mountain ranges throughout the world, including the Rocky Mountains, Sierra Nevada of California, the Tien Shan and Qilian Shan, China, Andes of South America, European Alps, and the Himalayas. He will talk to us about his research on snow, water and climate change at Niwot Ridge, just above Nederland.
This café will be located at CU’s Mountain Research Station (MRS). Transportation will be provided to and from Boulder to MRS the evening of the presentation. Light snacks will be provided at the station. More information to come upon reservation.
