Arctic Browning Workshop
Event Drivers of Arctic Browning
10th – 11th May, 2017, University of Sheffield, UK
• Presentations and discussions of Arctic Browning caused by climatic and biological events.
• Break out groups on workshop outputs, collaborations and future opportunities.
With increasing frequency of events causing damage to arctic vegetation, and an increasing appreciation of the diversity of different events that can cause browning, this workshop provides a timely opportunity for those working on arctic browning to discuss its drivers and subsequent consequences, and to prepare outputs and develop future collaborations. We are keen to hear from those working on any type of events that cause browning, from climatic (e.g. extreme winter warming, frost-drought and icing), disturbance (e.g. tundra fire) and biological events (e.g. herbivore and pathogen outbreaks).
