Changes in Arctic sea ice and hydrology of pan-Arctic river basins under the impact of climate changeDownload
Under the impact of global warming, the hydro-climatology over the Arctic has changed significantly. Warming over the Arctic region is twice the global mean warming rate since the 1980s, known as Arctic Amplification, which occurs because warming induces melting of sea ice, leading to feedbacks...
Many cold regions of North America rely on frozen ground for forestry operations to reduce environmental impacts, decrease costs, and access difficult areas surrounded by wet soils. Climate change may influence forestry operations by reducing winter access in those cold regions. In this thesis, I...
SSHRC IDG awarded 2021: This study addresses a critical gap in the current understanding of climate risk and disclosure by linking (a) physical climate risk (i.e., risk of financial loss from climate disasters), (b) investor demand for disclosure about the same, and © firms’ response to both. We...
Consequences of distributional asymmetry in a warming environment: Invasion of novel forests by the mountain pine beetleDownload
The range of many Holarctic forest insects does not comprise the entire range of their hosts, as they are often limited to more southern latitudes by the adverse effects of cold temperatures. Global climate warming has led to the increased potential for forest insects to invade novel habitats of...
Direct and indirect drivers of plant diversity responses to climate and clipping across northern temperate grasslandDownload
It is well known that climate can influence plant community assembly via a multitude of indirect and direct pathways. However, interpretations of plant diversity responses to simulated climate change experiments, and subsequent predictions of plant communities under future climate scenarios,...
Dissolved Organic Carbon Mobilization and Degradation Patterns in Retrogressive Thaw Slumps of the Peel Plateau, Northwest Territories, CanadaDownload
Anthropogenic climate change has affected the Canadian Arctic cryosphere, accelerating the development of retrogressive thaw slumps (RTS) across the Peel Plateau, NWT, Canada. RTS result from the thawing of ice-rich permafrost and develop due to ablation of ground ice exposed in the slump...
SSHRC Awarded IG 2017: Despite scientific consensus about the environmental costs of petrocarbon use and increasing political desire for energy transition, our societies remain fully dependent on fossil fuels. This research explores the ability---or inability---of contemporary culture to address...
Inequality, collective action, and adapting climatic variability are all central adaptive problems that shaped the evolution of our species’ sociality. Equally so, because of the internal logical structure of these challenges, each of these problems also sits at the heart of climate change....
SSHRC Invited PG; not funded (2014): Can urban agriculture make a substantial contribution to urban food security in a culturally appropriate and ecologically sustainable manner? What would an agri-food system that enhances urban food security and ecological sustainability look like, and what...
SSHRC Awarded PG-Letter of Intent (stage 1) 2014 and invited to stage 2: Our central objective directly confronts the following question: Can urban agriculture make a substantial contribution to urban food security in a culturally appropriate and ecologically sustainable manner? What would an...
