Simulating Global Warming: How Will Plant Communities Grow in Plus Two Degrees? Field Notes on Climate Change

    • Natural Sciences

Based at the Climate Impacts Research Station, this podcast takes you into the field with scientists as they investigate climate change in an Arctic environment. By placing OTCs (open-top chambers resembling a small plexiglass greenhouse with an open-top) over plots of Arctic plant growth, which increase their internal temperature by 1-2oC, we can see what happens to the plant communities when experiencing warmer seasons.Get in touch: Tweet @ArcticCIRC @emmabrisdion www.arcticirc.net
