WhenTuesday, Jan. 30, 2018, 1:15 – 2:15 p.m.
Description

Dr. Margaret Redsteer is a lead research scientist with the US Geological Service who focuses on the perturbations in climate and ecosystem processes and their linkages to landscape stability in order to unravel and understand the impacts and vulnerabilities human communities face from shifts in seasons, and how these may increase hazards, alter vegetation composition, and degrade ecosystem services. Much of this work has focused on Indigenous communities in the southwest and northern Great Plains, and has engaged in participatory research that engages and applies local and traditional knowledge. Dr. Redsteer earned her Ph.D. in geochemistry from Oregon State University, and has spent her career at the US Geological Service leading a variety of hazard evaluations, community engagement and outreach projects. She has led numerous technical workshops and trainings, in addition to lecturing and public speaking about climate adaptation, risk assessment and mitigation.  Dr. Redsteer has contributed to the UN Global Assessment on Disaster Risk Reduction and co-authored several assessment reports, including the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) working Group II Fifth Assessment Report chapter on Adaptation, Planning and Implementation, the National Climate Assessment, and the Second State of the Carbon Cycle report.
