As part of the Institute on Ecosystems' Rough Cut Science Series, Dr. Greg Pederson will give a talk titled "Changing Water Resources and Increasing Drought Intensities in the Missouri River Basin" at noon on Wednesday, November 14 in Barnard Hall Room 126.
Dr. Pederson is a research scientist working primarily on the role of climate variability in driving changes in water resources, and other biological and physical components of mountainous ecosystems in western North America. Of particular interest is the magnitude of low-frequency hydroclimatic variability and its implications for drought risk, as well as the climatic drivers associated with observed changes in mountain snowpack, streamflow, glaciers, and forest disturbance events. Recent and ongoing studies have addressed the susceptibility of natural resources to climate variability and change and sought to apply both the modern and paleoclimatic records to present day resource management problems.
Dr. Pederson is an affiliate faculty with the Earth Sciences department and the Institute on Ecosystems (IoE) at Montana State University. He grew up in Michigan and earned his B.S. in Ecology and Botany from Michigan State University, before moving to Montana to earn an M.S. from Montana State University. In 2010 he completed his Ph.D. in watershed management and ecohydrology at the University of Arizona then returned to Bozeman, Montana.
