As part of the Museum’s enhanced partnership with the University of New Mexico Department of Biology, we are privileged to have Dr. Clifford N. Dahm as the speaker for this Curator’s Coffee. Dr. Dahm has been studying water resources in New Mexico for nearly three decades. He will discuss changes in stream water chemistry after the major Las Conchas fire in the Jemez Mountains in 2011, and the way water quality affects biology.
Dr. Cliff Dahm is an expert in freshwater ecology, oceanography, and aquatic chemistry. He studies stream and river ecology, ground waters, ways nutrients cycle through aquatic ecosystems, and riparian ecology. He also recently completed a four year assignment as the lead scientists for the Delta Science Program in Sacramento, California. His Ph.D. in oceanography and aquatic ecology is from Oregon State University.
