Amilcare Porporato, the Thomas J. Wu ’94 Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and a professor of civil and environmental engineering and the Princeton Environmental Institute, presented, “On Soil Moisture, Plants and Hydroclimate,” Tuesday, Dec. 4, in Guyot Hall, Room 10. Porpora to discussed how plant growth drives the flow of energy and water between the land and atmosphere. He reported on his work examining the influence of different types of photosynthesis — coupled with the movement of water within plants — on the daily evolution of the lower atmosphere and, potentially, on regional water cycles.
