Climate Variability Installation uses art to express fundamental questions about climate change in dryland ecosystems. The RAC supported project engages students across disciplines, the general public, and staff at the Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge and UNM Sevilleta Field Station. The outdoor installation represents the site’s groundbreaking research to understand climate change in a context of climate variability in arid zones. Artists continue to work with the PIs on the SEV’s climate variability and aridity experiments and seek to engage the public in how the data will be shared and expressed.

Project Status: Ongoing (planned completion by early Nov. 2019)
