2024 Spring Seminar Series – Conghe Song

March 27 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

The 2024 Spring Seminar Series will feature Conghe Song, professor and chair of the University of North Carolina Department of Geography and Environment. Dr. Song will give a presentation titled “Implications of Vegetation and Climate Interactions on Carbon Sequestration and Freshwater Supply” on Wednesday, March 27, at 11 a.m. in Room 2217 of the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment Building located at 602 Duncan Drive, Auburn, AL.

Dr. Song is hosted by Dr. Li An, Solon & Martha Dixon Endowed Professor in the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment. Song will provide his evidence showing that the Earth is greening in the twenty-first century. His presentation will explain how croplands are greening while forests are browning and how this process relates to deforestation. Additionally, Dr. Song will address vegetation breeding and its effect on freshwater supply.

Dr. Song has studied geography for more than 25 years, and his research spans across remote sensing, ecosystem modeling as it relates to climate change, and rural land-use changes through surveying. He regularly publishes in a wide variety of journals and serves as a principal investigator (PI) on several federally and privately funded projects.

Faculty, students, and the public are invited to attend this program. Advanced registration is not required.  Refreshments will be available after the seminar.
