Climate Change Researcher

Research by Roger Hooke, University of Maine cooperating professor with the Climate Change Institute, and colleagues at the Javier Pedraza of Complutense University in Spain is discussed in an article in the December 2012 issue of the magazine GSA Today, according to a report on the PhysOrg.com website. The researchers studied the effects of humans on the Earth’s surface, which include deforestation, encroachment of urban areas onto agricultural lands and soil erosion. They found that more than 50 percent of the planet’s land surface has been modified by human activity.
