Official welcome back to the lobby polar bear

Wanted to get the ball rolling for a FW postdoc welcome/get-together. I don’t think we have any new postdocs starting this fall at the QFC, but I’m sure there are some in the department somewhere - and it would be nice to get together, even if we are just welcoming ourselves back!

Invite is open to your friends & family, just say how many on the fancy google form (which only shows you what everyone else is bringing after you hit submit, but you can always change your response, fear not).

When: Thursday, August 27th @ 6pm

Overview: Landscapes across the world are increasingly interconnected, both ecologically and socioeconomically. To understand and manage such complex interconnections, a new integrated framework of telecoupling is proposed ( Telecouplings are socioeconomic and ecological interactions between multiple coupled human and natural systems (e.g., landscapes) over distances.

Telecouplings are socioeconomic and environmental interactions over distances. They are now increasingly common and more influential across the globe. They occur during trade, water transfer, payments for ecosystem services, foreign investment, migration, and tourism. They also emerge when information flows, species invade, and diseases spread. Even a remote nature reserve has numerous telecouplings with the rest of the world. Telecouplings have profound positive and negative effects on distant systems.
