Join us in Annapolis on Tuesday mornings for the Spring 2020 Seminar Series, starting Tuesday, January 28. The seminar series, one of SESYNC’s primary public offerings, provides an opportunity for visitors to participate in the interdisciplinary intellectual life of the Center.
There is increasing pressure in Alberta — the top oil-producing province in Canada — to extract and transport oil and gas to American markets.
This project represents the first socio-environmental-technological system (SETS) study of the generation of stormwater pollution in urban watersheds across the United States. Urban stormwater pollution poses a major and growing threat to local waterbodies, yet its study and management has consistently ignored the human activities and behaviors that release pollution.
The lack of globally consistent and up-to-date dam data is a major and recurring problem that prevents researchers from fully understanding the impacts of dams, investigating the efficacy of water scarcity mitigation, and monitoring progress towards water-related global goals. Here, we propose to develop novel scientific approaches, including the interpretation of remote sensing imagery based on machine le
This Graduate Pursuit will investigate how public perceptions of biodiversity may influence conservation. We will quantify the relative influence of public perceptions on conservation success at the country level, as well as conduct a case-study comparison of three mangrove-holding nations.
