NRESS PHD Program Dissertation Proposal Defense 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM10:00 AM to 11:00 AM: NRESS PHD Program Dissertation Proposal Defense PRESENTER: DYLAN KELLY TITLE: Reconstructing Early Colonization and Colonial-Era Forest Management Impacts in the Great Bay Estuary ADVISOR: Professor Meghan Howey Contact Dylan for Zoom link: dylan.kelly@unh.edu More about Dylan’s research: The Indigenous territory of N’dakinna, known today as the New England region, underwent rapid and violent socioecological change with the onset of European colonization. Changes in land-use and the extraction of natural resources transformed the landscape, radically altering the forests and waterways, and shaping the landscape we see today. My research uses a transdisciplinary set of tools and perspectives to model colonial expansion and the accompanying land-use changes in the landscape of the Great Bay Estuary to examine the resulting impacts on surface climate conditions through time.
