We are excited to announce the launch of our feature film screening series!
Join us in celebrating Earth Week with a free screening of the film Kiss the Ground, which provides a solution to balancing our climate, replenishing our freshwater supplies, and feeding the world.
Dr. David Butman, UW associate professor in the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences and Future Rivers Executive Committee member, co-authored a recently published paper suggesting that the CO2 emissions from Chinese inland waters have greatly offset the terrestrial carbon sink and are therefore a key component of China’s carbon budget.
The School of Environmental and Forest Sciences Ecosystem Biogeochemistry Lab is looking for a research assistant to contribute to an ongoing project which seeks to understand how vegetation and seasonal changes in lake level influence current estimates of greenhouse gas emissions.
Save the dates for our upcoming lunchtime film and speaker series! Each session will start with a one-hour screening of an episode of the PBS docuseries H2O The Molecule That Made Us, followed by a facilitated conversation and open Q&A with an expert panel focused on main themes of that episode (e.g., big data, history and civilization, and the intersection of health and global water politics).
When it comes to things that give us the heebie-jeebies, parasites reign supreme. Although they might give us the creeps, they are essential to ecosystems. Chelsea Wood, Future Rivers executive committee member, talks with Bill Nye on Science Rules!
