Exploring environmental changes in the Ozarks
Pavlowsky will review recent trends in river flooding and related environmental effects caused by climate change in the Ozarks.
The Ozarks region has been affected by more frequent and larger floods in recent years.
This increases risks to property, ecological services and human life, Pavlowsky shares.
“Understanding recent climate change in terms of its causes, effects and social impacts is paramount to creating a sustainable world,” he said. “Being able to understand and predict hydrologic changes in watersheds will help us lessen the effects of climate change and maintain healthy ecosystems.”
