Earth & Environment Professor Curtis Woodcock was in China this past week to give the keynote address at the International Conference on Carbon Cycle and Global Change in Hangzhou, China.
Professor Woodcock’s presentation was titled “Time Series Analysis of Landsat Data for Continuous Monitoring of Land Cover Change and Condition.”
Earth & Environment Associate Professor Lucy Hutyra will be in the Kendall Square area tonight to give a talk on “Investigating Urban Carbon Cycles.”
The talk will focus on the role of urban environments in contributing to CO2 emissions and how cities can potential “serve as ‘first responders’ for climate action” (Facebook event page).
The talk begins at 7:00 pm at the Science Cafe at 650 East Kendall Street, Cambridge. The talk is free and open to the public though space is limited. You can RSVP for the event here.
Prof. Hutyra’s seminar will be held this Thursday and is titled “Quantifying and modeling the urban carbon cycle — An examination of land use change, vegetation responses, and emissions.”
Fagherazzi’s lecture, “Marsh collapse does not require sea-level rise,” will be held Monday afternoon as part of the Dept. of Marine and Coastal Sciences’s IMCS Seminar Series.
Earth & Environment Environmental Analysis & Policy major Emily Korman will be presenting her senior thesis research on “Political Ecology: the Reality of Boston’s Gas Leaks Policies” later today, Thursday April 30th, 2015, at 3:30 pm in CAS 132.
In an email sent to the department, Earth & Environment Professor Nathan Phillips described Korman’s work on the project:
“Emily Korman has spent the last year identifying and analyzing inter-relationships among entities involved in management of Boston’s natural gas pipeline infrastructure. As part of her work Emily managed to interview many key players to gain some valuable insights into this issue. I invite you to her talk…where she uses this knowledge as a basis for solutions to managing urban infrastructure problems.”
All members of the department are encouraged to attend Korman’s talk.
Assistant Professor Lucy Hutyra will be in Utah this week to give a seminar at the Global Change and Sustainability Center at the University of Utah.
Earth & Environment PhD candidate Jared Woollacott gave a talk this past Friday, February 13th, at Appalachian State University’s Department of Economics in Boone, NC.
Jared is a PhD candidate in Geography; he is advised by Associate Professor Ian Sue Wing.
The seminar was titled “Shore Nitrogen Cycling – Variation in Space and Time.”

James’s talk was titled “A Three-Dimensional Shear-Velocity Model of the Atlantic Upper Mantle from Analysis of a Regional Dataset of Fundamental-Mode Rayleigh Waves.”
James gave her talk this morning, Wednesday December 17, 2014, at 9:15 am as part of the “Imaging the Earth IV Seismic Studies of Crust and Mantle Structure” session.
James is a PhD candidate in Earth Science with an emphasis on seismology and mantle tomography.
Earth & Environment PhD candidate Jordan Winkler‘s dissertation defense is scheduled for today at 3 PM in CAS 132.
Winkler’s dissertation is titled “Climate Change Impact on Crop Yield: Towards a Probabilistic Modeling Framework.”
Winkler is a PhD candidate in Geography; his advisor is Associate Professor Ian Sue Wing.
All members of the department are encouraged to come support Jordan.
