April 19, 2022, noon to 1 p.m.
In this webinar, Dr. Suzi Clark, a postdoctoral associate with the Minnesota Climate Adaptation Partnership, will share the results of a study that is part of the Dashboard for Agricultural Water Use and Nutrient Management (DAWN) project. Existing research was analyzed to understand agricultural stakeholders' climate information needs: what information they need, where they get it, how they use it in decision-making, and what their end goals for its use are. This research will contribute to DAWN's dashboard development, which is designed to help agriculturalists improve their decision making through the use of climate information and model projections.
Speaker: Dr. Suzanna (Suzi) Clark
Suzi studied Environmental Science at the University of California, Los Angeles, with a minor in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences. After graduating she moved to Hamburg, Germany, where she worked for a year and a half in oceanography research, studying the potential effects of large offshore wind farms on the North Sea. In 2021 she completed her Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography through the Massachusetts Institute of Technology - Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Joint Program, where she studied harmful algal blooms (also known as red tides) and potential effects of climate change on blooms in the Gulf of Maine. Climate change has been an ever-present theme in her work, as has outreach. With MCAP, she finally has the opportunity to merge her two passions by helping Minnesotans improve their resilience in the face of climate change.
