ENVIRONMENT AND SCIENCE

The Head Chair for the EnviroSci Committee is Hannah Hashimi

Welcome to the MUNHIGH22! The Environment and Science Committee aims to debate some of the most prevailing issues relative to the deficient conditions of the atmosphere (covering just a small scale of the widespread damage of climate change). During the course of our fecund debate, we will specifically discuss the issue of ineffective water dams for cold water conservation. Knowing where cold water is likely to stay cold is critical for its conservation. But "cold" is more than just a number on a thermometer. Dams do not adequately support cold-water ecosystems, finds a new study.


Following this, we will debate the alarming issue of deadwood in the global carbon cycle and the concerning temperature increase of the Atlantic Ocean. The speed at which deadwood decomposes in forests depends on the climate as well as on fungi and insects. An international research team has now determined the annual contribution made by deadwood to the global carbon cycle and quantified the importance of insects in the decomposition of wood.
I wish you all the best with collating your insightful research on these issues, and look forward to a lively, cooperative and successful conference.
