Pollen at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science

Hi all,

It isn't very often that I get to break loose from my office or lab to take part in the outreach program that is lead by the National Park Service, but I just wanted to share a few images of me and my colleagues at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. We were at the museum yesterday to help them celebrate national fossil day. I brought along my microscope and few pollen slides from Rocky Mountain National Park so I show the kids what some microscopic fossils look like. I have to say that it was a big success! Hopefully I will be able to attend a few more sessions like this in the future. The National Park Service is a fantastic organization to work with, and I'm especially proud that we are starting to introduce the topic of paleoenvironmental research into our outreach activities.

New NPS Sea Level Rise Website

I'm pleased to announce the creation of a new National Park Service website that addresses the impacts of sea level change. The website is a little bare bones at the moment as the final report for my project is still going through review, but watch this space in the coming months for links to the report and our online sea level and storm viewer.

Forthcoming Webinar

Hi everyone, I just wanted to leave a quick note with a link to my forthcoming webinar presentation on sea level rise and storm surge in the National Park System. The webinar is on Thursday October 13 at 2 pm EST/11 am PST. You will need to register in advance to watch it:

I'll be using this opportunity to preview the sea level and storm surge report that is going through review right now, so check it out if you would like a sneak peek of what will be released in 2017.
