Robert Max Holmes, an earth system scientist with broad interests in the responses and feedbacks of coupled land-ocean systems to environmental and global change, will give a talk titled 'Going with the Flow: A River-Centric View of our Changing Planet.'
Holmes' current research focuses on large rivers and their watersheds and addresses how climate change and other disturbances are impacting the cycles of water and chemicals in the environment. He is a senior scientist at the Woods Hole Research Center and director of the NSF-funded Polaris Project, a collaboration of scientists, teachers and students conducting research to advance scientific understanding of the changing Arctic. He is also a principal investigator for the Arctic Great Rivers Observatory.
