[Mindset Public Talk] Prof Nathalie Dubois, Dr Keely Mills, Dr Suzanne McGowan – Aquatic Transitions: Understanding the Anthropocene using lake sediment records, Thu 16 Feb, 6pm, KLTC

It’s our pleasure to announce that we will have three guest speakers for the Mindset Public Talk in February. Prof Nathalie Dubois (EAWAG, Switzerland), Dr Keely Mills (British Geological Survey) and Dr Suzanne McGowan (University of Nottingham, UK) will talk to us about ‘Aquatic Transitions: Understanding the Anthropocene using lake sediment records’. The speakers are visiting Malaysia for, and this event forms part of, an international workshop run by the Aquatic Transitions Working Group of PAGES (Past Global Changes).

This is a very nice opportunity to explore how humans in Malaysia and elsewhere have impacted the environment over the sweep of time to the present, and the related idea of the ‘Anthropocene’. More details are below and in the attached flyer.

This event is one of Mindset’s Public Talks – monthly events that are generally held in the third week of each month. Please note that, unusually, February’s talk will be on a Thursday evening. These talks are aimed to a general audience including academics, government officers, NGOs, people from the relevant industries, and any person with an interest for environmental issues. We look forward to seeing you at this and future Mindset events.

Please do join us and share this information with others who might be interested.

About the Talk

Freshwater resources provide many crucial ecosystem services, and yet they are threatened by human impacts such as toxic pollution, nutrient enrichment, exotic species introductions and excessive soil erosion which have escalated during the ‘Anthropocene’. Sustainable freshwater management requires rigorous understanding of how human impacts influence aquatic ecosystems. In this lecture, three experts will explain how paleolimnologists unlock the secrets of lake sediments to interpret past changes. The second part of the lecture will explore how such techniques have been applied in northwest Europe to document human impacts over thousands of years. Finally, the lecture will present new research on sediment cores from the iconic Malaysian lake Tasik Chini to explore how environmental changes associated with land use conversion, mining and damming have changed the ecology of this unique flood pulse wetland.

About the Speakers

This public lecture is part of a workshop run by the Aquatic Transitions Working Group funded by PAGES (Past Global Changes). More information about this initiative can be accessed at http://pastglobalchanges.org/ini/wg/aquatic-transitions/intro
