Climate Change and Ice Storms Lecture at Cary Institute fo Ecosystem Studies

Discover why ice storms may be on the rise in the northeastern U.S. and how they impact forest ecosystems in this lecture by Forest Service ecologist Lindsey Rustad. 

Ice storms are destructive, unpredictable, and may be on the rise in the northeastern U.S. due to climate change. Rustad will discuss how ice storms leave a legacy of impacts on forest ecosystems, altering everything from the composition of trees to water quality.

Rustad led a "cool study" that was the first of its kind to simulate large ice storms in a New Hampshire forest. The ecologically important and visually stunning work was recently profiled in National Geographic.
