New Article - Long-Term Fire Trends in Hispaniola and Puerto Rico

I'm pleased to announce that The Professional Geographer has released an article by me and my co-author Sally P. Horn. This is the first article from my Caribbean research. The paper looks at fire records from three sites: Lake Miragoane in Haiti, Laguna Tortuguero in Puerto Rico, and my PhD dissertation site Laguna Saladilla in the Dominican Republic. The article is available at: http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/00330124.2014.922017

Association of American Geographers Meeting 2015

I know it's only November, but I'm looking ahead to the Association of American Geographers 2015 Meeting which will be held in Chicago, IL. As secretary of the paleoenvironmental change (PEC) specialty group, I've been in contact with a number of people regarding group events that will be held during the meeting. Most of my emails have been sent out via the AAG messaging system. However, it has come to my attention that some people might not be getting the emails if they have let their membership lapse or are not subscribed to the PEC group listing. If you are looking for more information about paleo- related events and sessions please check out the PEC website for copies of my announcements: www.aagpec.com. The website also has a section containing the past issues of the PEC newsletter, so you can catch up on the latest goings on in the group.

The deadline for sessions has been extended to November 20th, 2014. I will post information about the student competitions once the abstract submissions deadline has passed. I will be around in most of the paleo sessions as well as presenting on my latest future sea level rise calculations. I hope to see you there. See you in Chicago!
