Winchester Academy hosts research scientist
J. Val Klump will present “The Great Lakes: Their Future, Our Responsibility” at 6:30 p.m. Monday, March 14, at the Waupaca Area Public Library.
Hosted by Winchester Academy of Waupaca, the program is free and open to the public.
Klump will discuss what is happening in the Great Lakes today and what the future holds for them.
His program will address how to manage these lakes in a sustainable way, how they are monitored, how they are changing and what policies will best protect them.
Klump is a professor, associate dean of research, and senior director of the School of Freshwater Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
His past research on how nutrients are cycled in lakes has taken him from the deepest soundings in Lakes Superior and Michigan aboard a research submersible, to the largest and oldest lake in the world – Lake Baikal in eastern Siberia.
His recent research has highlighted the presence and dynamics of “dead zones” in Green Bay, including the impact of climate changes, their extent and duration.
Klump currently serves as a board member of several regional and national organizations.
He holds a law degree from Georgetown University and a doctorate in marine science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Winchester Academy is funded through sponsors and tax-deductible donations. This program is sponsored by T-Dub’s Public House.
