Where Did the Snow Go? Climate Change in New England

June 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join MetroWest Climate Solutions on June 5 at 7 p.m. for the second program in our series on the effects of climate change.

New England is currently warming faster than the global average. As a result, southern New England is now a global hot spot of decreasing snow cover and throughout New England, annual precipitation has increased along with severe rainstorms.

Join Professor Stephen Young from Salem State University as he explains the science behind New England’s warming and what impacts this warming is already creating and will create in the future.

Three of his recent publications provide an insight into climate change in New England:
“Overall Warming with Reduced Seasonality: Temperature Change in New England, USA, 1900–2020” in the journal Climate.
“Global and Regional Snow Cover Decline: 2000–2022”in the journal Climate.
“Snow cover change and its relationship with land surface temperature and vegetation in northeastern North America from 2000 to 2017” in the International Journal of Remote Sensing.

Dr. Young has been teaching in the Geography and Sustainability department at Salem State University for over 28 years. His specialty is in the use of satellites and drones to study environmental changes on Earth. He has over 50 scientific publications as well as over 20 art and science exhibitions, which explain various aspects of science. He received his Ph.D. in geography at Clark University and a Masters in environmental science from Yale University and a BA in environmental studies from the University of Vermont.
