Zoom Series – Navigating Climate Models: Understanding Future Climate Trends in South-Central Texas

Event Series Event Series (See All)

February 22 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

How will climate change impact Texas and the native prairie and savanna ecosystems? How do we plan restorations to be sustainable in 2050? Do we need to change our land management practices? The NPAT Fayette Prairie Chapter will host a year-long series of presentations to explore climate change and the implications for the Fayette Prairie ecosystem. Beginning with the climate models, this series will examine the forecasts within a historical context, then focus upon water resources, management practices, projected changes in tallgrass prairies and soil microbial structure, and end with restoration paradigms in a changing world.

A wealth of expertise consisting of active researchers will bring the science of climate change and the implications to us, the landowners. The presentations will be sequential; please plan to engage at the  beginning. Mark your calendars now!

Dr. Zong-Liang Yang is a Professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at the
Jackson School of Geosciences, The University of Texas at Austin. His expertise lies in
understanding and modeling land-atmosphere exchanges of energy, water, and carbon, with a
focus on quantifying land climate interaction and feedback strengths. Dr. Yang’s research
extends to exploring crucial applications of societal relevance, including the prediction of
weather extremes such as floods, droughts, heat waves, and urban overheating.
