As part of Penn State's regular “We Are!” feature, we recognize 11 Penn Staters, including Charles Mierwald, who have gone above and beyond what’s asked of them in their work at the University.
Massive volcanic events in Earth’s history that released large amounts of carbon into the atmosphere. A new method to estimate how much and how rapidly carbon was released by the volcanoes could improve our understanding of the climate response
Tirthankar Chakraborty, an earth scientist in the Atmospheric, Climate and Earth Sciences Division of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), will give the talk, “Modeling Spatial Variability of Urban Microclimate,” at 4 p.m. on Monday, March 11.
'Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Water' to be an opportunity to share research, learn, be inspired and network across the Penn State water community
Guido Cervone, a renowned expert in computational science and geoinformatics, will become the interim director of ICDS, effective April 1. He will take over from Jenni Evans, professor of meteorology and atmospheric science, who will retire in June.
Christa Brelsford, research scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory, will give the talk, “Cities, climate change and disease: How can science help humanity solve big problems?” at 4 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 26, via Zoom
A new wireless charging device developed that can harvest energy from magnetic field and ultrasound sources simultaneously could power the next generation of implantable biomedical devices.
Incorporating field data for the first time, researchers at Penn State demonstrated machine learning can be a powerful and cost-effective tool for monitoring sequestered carbon dioxide (CO2), overcoming a hurdle for the burgeoning technology aimed at combating climate change. New work from researchers at Penn State demonstrates that machine learning could greatly reduce the long-term costs of monitoring carbon sequestration site
Joshua Inwood, professor of geography and African American studies at Penn State, recently co-authored the article, "The Living Black Atlas: Learning Geospatial Ethics from the African American Freedom Struggle." The article delves into the historical significance of cartography within African American communities and its role in resistance, storytelling and community empowerment.
Earle “Skip” Lenker established the Earle S. Lenker Fund for Field Studies in Geology to help students participate in field camp, a unique learning experience where students travel to the western U.S. to witness the geological formations they’re learning about in the classroom.
