Graduating students, come join us at Grad Reception on Wednesday, April 7 from 4:00-4:45pm EDT on Microsoft Teams Events! 

At Grad Reception, graduating students and faculty/staff will have an opportunity to celebrate together our Science graduating class of 2021 as they prepare to graduate at the Spring or Fall convocation. 

Friday, March 19, 2021 — 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM EDT

Location: via Zoom

You are invited to attend an interdisciplinary workshop to explore synergies among experts engaged in environmental research that encompasses measurements and modeling, along with scientists and engineers developing sensor technology. The environmental measurements include variables typically quantified to assess climate, air and water quality. The sensor technology is based on photonics and nanomaterials. The modeling covers the current status of regional and global scale models and research needs that could motivate new observations and lab experiments to improve the predictive power of environmental models.
