Upcoming Meeting

NESTVAL is just around the corner…

If you plan to present a paper or poster, please complete your abstract by Sunday, Oct 23rd. The paper sessions will be finalized by the end of next week (October 28th). All important information for the conference will be posted at: http://dgl.salemstate.edu/nestval2022/ in the coming weeks.

Our Plenary Speaker is retiring SSU faculty member and NESTVAL member Stephen Young, his talk title is: “Climate Change in New England:  An Uncertain Future.”
Professor Young is a former chair of the Department of Geography at Salem State University where he uses remote sensing (satellite imaging) to analyze climate change and deforestation. He received his Ph.D. in geography from Clark University, a master’s degree in environmental science from Yale University and a B.A. in environmental studies from the University of Vermont. His geographic areas of expertise include northeastern North America and China. In addition to his academic research, he bridges the arts and sciences through art gallery exhibitions which try to expose the public to science and geography. In the summer of 2015 his exhibition Macro or Micro? (with Salem State University Biology professor Paul Kelly) was on display at the Museum of Science in Boston, MA and at the Sazmanab Institute of Contemporary Art in Tehran, Iran.
