About the speaker: Dr. Stephen Dery is an internationally recognized climate scientist. He joined UNBC as a Canada Research Chair in Northern Hydrometeorology and his research focuses on many aspects of snow and ice, including the influence of forestry and forest clearance on snow cover, snow melt, hydrology and micro-meteorology and the impact of local conditions and large-scale forcing on river discharge in BC and the Arctic.
