HMEI Faculty Seminar: “Mysteries and Challenges of Agricultural Emissions to the Atmosphere”
Mark Zondlo, professor of civil and environmental engineering, will present “Mysteries and Challenges of Agricultural Emissions to the Atmosphere” in Guyot Hall, Room 10, and online via Zoom. Zondlo is the second speaker in the fall 2023 HMEI Faculty Seminar Series.
Agriculture is one of the largest sectors contributing greenhouse gases and air pollutant emissions to the atmosphere, but it receives relatively little attention compared to its outsized influences on climate, human health, and ecosystem degradation. Emissions from agriculture are extremely heterogeneous in space and time within a large number of individual source locations, so traditional methods of quantifying emissions from sectors with tailpipes or smokestack emissions simply cannot be used. This talk will feature the integration of new measurement approaches and sensor technologies to constrain methane, nitrous oxide, and ammonia emission inventories from agricultural activities.
This seminar is free and open to the public. Lunch will be available in the Guyot Atrium at noon. All attendees can register here in advance to attend this event via Zoom livestream.
