Resiliency and Sustainability Workshop: Interdependent Critical Infrastructure and Environmental Assets

Resiliency And Sustainability

This workshop will bring together experts and researchers across a set of interdisciplinary fields to discuss the state of the art in assessing interdependent infrastructure networks and environmental assets, with the explicit goal of establishing future research and market needs. Resilient and sustainable assets – in the context of multiple hazards, the environment, society, and economic constraints – require targeted mitigation to lessen the impacts from human activity and future disasters, as well as resiliency to recover quickly from those hazards. Importantly, the move towards more sustainable and resilient communities, both nationally and globally, requires informed leaders to be able to identify and evaluate the best paths forward given the complex interplay between technology, the environment, ethics, law and policy, business, and economics. These leaders must be able to:…

GLOBES Scholar Series: Linda Prokopy

On Monday, April 8, 2019, at 4pm, Dr. Linda Prokopy will give a talk in 312 DeBartolo Hall, as part of the GLOBES Scholar Series of Talks Intersecting Environment and Society.

“Moving the Needle on Adoption of Conservation Practices in Midwestern Agriculture: Land use changes, farm management practices, water pollution, climate change, and other human activities all threaten our natural resources here in Indiana and throughout the Midwest. For 15 years, Dr. Prokopy has performed extensive research on farmers’ adoption of conservation practices that improve water quality and soil health. In this talk, she will synthesize and share how she has used her research to influence both conservation practice and policy discussions on how to best motivate farmers, stakeholders, and citizens of all kinds to participate in more environmentally friendly behaviors and practices.”…

ND-ECI Brown Bag Seminar: Phillip Stepanian

Title: Radar Aero-ecology: Monitoring Aerial Wildlife in a Changing World

Eci Seminar Stepanian

Rapid anthropogenic environmental change has ongoing impacts on wildlife, but quantifying these impacts across large temporal and spatial scales is logistically challenging. These challenges are compounded when considering highly mobile animals that inhabit the airspace (i.e., birds, bats, and insects). Aerial remote sensing by radar networks has provided the capacity to monitor animal movements at continental scales across multiple decades, enabling new insights into long-term trends in animal adaptation to environmental change.…
