The theme will be the impacts of COVID-19 on environments and people.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has caused massive and rapid changes in societal organization and economic activity. These shifts represent large perturbations to human forcings in the earth system, and thus present an opportunity to learn about both earth system processes and the relationships between human and natural systems across a range of spatial and temporal scales.” – Dr. Zhibo Zhang

Format of Virtual Symposium:

1. PowerPoints: Presentations will be available here before the event so that attendees can view them at their own leisure. During the event, there will be a live Q&A session for each speaker based on questions submitted from the audience in advance.
