Monitoring climate change in nat’l parks, monuments

The Asia Pacific Academy of Sciences, Science Education, and Environmental Management, or APASEEM, and the U.S. National Park Service are inviting the public to a presentation this week on the current "hot topic" of climate change.

A visiting expert in this field who is on island, Ph.D. candidate David B. Simeral, will be sharing recent findings and explaining monitoring methods and apparatuses being deployed nationwide to better observe and document climate change throughout the U.S. national park and monuments. Simeral is from the Western Regional Climate Center (www.wrcc.dri.edu/) and will talk about how climate monitoring works, what the WRCC does as part of this, and how the station at American Memorial Park fits into the global effort to understand climate conditions.

The discussion occurs on Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2014, at the American Memorial Park auditorium, beginning at 6pm. The talk will be accompanied by multimedia presentations, along with a question-and-answer dialogue afterwards. As always at APASEEM events, questions from local scientists and the public are greatly encouraged.

For more information about the upcoming talk, contact Justin Mills of the NPS at justin_s_mills@nps.gov or John Furey of APASEEM at jfurey@saipan.com.
