Join the Alumni Association and the College of Arts & Sciences for the first Discoveries Lecture Series of the year with Professors Lucy Hutyra and Nathan Phillips of the Department of Earth & Environment. Hutyra and Phillips will discuss their new laboratory - the city of Boston, its own unique ecosystem. They will share the progress of ULTRA- Ex: Metabolism of Boston, a National Science Foundation funded research project investigating the city’s carbon metabolism. The impacts of this study will affect the city and its residents in the years ahead. Hutyra and Phillips’ research will serve as tools in the production of the Massachusetts Global Warming Solutions Act, the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, and the American Clean Energy and Security Act.
