A new publication by E&E alum Arnold Fernandes and E&E PhD student William Kearney has been highlighted in Earth & Space Science News. In their article, “Declining Radial Growth Response of Coastal Forests to Hurricanes and Nor’easters,” published in the Journal of Geophysical Research – Biogeosciences, Fernandes, Kearney, and their colleagues “adopt a dendroclimatic and statistical modeling approach to understand the response and resilience of a coastal pine forest to extreme storm events, over the past few decades.” They suggest their results “can help predict vegetation response patterns to similar disturbances in the future.” Their co-authors include E&E faculty members Michael Dietze and Sergio Fagherazzi.
