The HMEI Faculty Seminar Series was created in 2015 as a public venue for senior faculty to discuss their research in the context of environmental science and current events. Each semester features four faculty seminars on topics that include sea-level rise, climate change, carbon sequestration, green technology, renewable energy and sustainability, biodiversity, infectious diseases and global health, urban infrastructure, environmental history and humanities, environmental chemistry and ocean biogeochemistry. All lectures are open to the public and video of the seminars are made available on our website.
All seminars for Fall 2021 will begin at 12:30 p.m. Venue information will be posted in late summer. Registration to receive a webinar link will be available in each event posting.
