Air Around Us: Science, Technology, and Health: CEE Spring Distinguished Lecture

March 6 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Sutardja Dai Hall, UC Berkeley Room 242
Berkeley, CA 94720 United States
+ Google Map
Free

This lecture features three vignettes that illustrate recent advances in knowledge about the air we breathe. First, airplanes fly through areas where high ozone levels occur naturally; exposures in the cabin raise health concerns in part owing to the volatile byproducts of ozone reactions with skin oils. Second, in the well-controlled environment of neonatal intensive care units, resuspension and shedding from occupants are important sources of airborne particles. Consequently, we are studying clothing as a transport vector for airborne particles,…

Tech companies are cleaning up their data centers and building shiny new buildings that sip water and energy. But are these companies really as green as they claim to be? How do we know they arent just greenwashing? Many tech and industrial companies have issued statements in support of the Paris climate agreement, but will they spend energy supporting something that seems so distant from their daily operations and bottom line?Sustainability officers also deal with other issues such as trying…

From microplastics contamination through jellyfish metabolism to ocean carbon flux

March 7 @ 11:00 am
Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, 7700 Sandholdt Rd
Moss Landing, CA 95039 United States
+ Google Map
Free

EOMAR research focuses on plankton metabolism. We measure physiological and enzymatic respiration and ammonia excretion in mysids, protozoans, bacteria, macro-algae, and seawater from different oceanic areas. In addition, we study the effects of microplastic contamination on marine biota in the waters around the Canary Islands. Recently, we have begun looking at the carbon dioxide (CO2) production side of respiration using isocitrate dehydrogenase as a respiration proxy and have developed a model of CO2 production that calculates plankton respiration and vertical ocean carbon flux.…

Between 2000 and 2010, newly merged U.S. airlines decreased service to airports in small and mid-sized metropolitan regions, opting to consolidate their operations at high-value airport hubs (passenger transfer points). At this point travelers living in small and mid-sized regions likely began leaking, or abandoning their local airport to take flights from hub airports offering more convenient flight options. The extent of this practice, however, is not well established. I ask to what extent airline consolidation deepened the divide in…
