  • Patricia Leopold

    Patricia Leopold is a Climate Change Outreach Specialist in the Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science unit of the US Forest Service. As a Climate Change Outreach Specialist for the Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science, Patricia leads activities to build and strengthen partnerships, synthesize research into non-technical language for a variety of audiences, develop tools for forest managers, and promote the use of tools in adaptive forest management. Her primary project is the Climate Change Response Framework, which is a collaborative, cross-boundary effort to engage scientists, natural resource managers, and land owners to integrate climate change considerations into on-the-ground planning and activities.

  • Richard Lathrop

    Dr. Richard Lathrop is professor in the Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Natural Resources at Rutgers University as well as the Director of the Grant F. Walton Center for Remote Sensing & Spatial Analysis and the Rutgers University Ecological Preserve. His research program works to integrate insights of landscape ecology and geography with the application of geo-spatial information technology to improve our understanding of the structure and function of coupled human-environmental systems at broader landscape to regional scales. Working with partners, he attempts to translate that understanding into effective and appropriate techniques to improve ‘on-the-ground’ natural resource management and land use planning. Dr. Lathrop is also an EOAS faculty member. More Information about Dr. Lathrop
