About the Environmental Science Colloquium Series (ECo-Series)

The ECo-Series provides a forum for discussing scientific issues of societal relevance, sharing new and innovative techniques, and for interacting with other scientists, stakeholders and policy makers. Our aim is to provide entertaining, educational, and provocative events which foster discussion and creativity both within and outside of the Department.

Future Earth: Research for sustainability in the Anthropocene

The dramatic acceleration in the human enterprise and the impacts o the Earth system over the past century, with a synchronous acceleration of trends from the 1950s to the present day – over a single human lifetime – show little sign of abatement. This “Great Acceleration” contributed to the proposal that Earth is now in the Anthropocene. The global targets …

Why Does It Always Rain On Me – Properties of Alternative Durable Water Repellent Chemicals for Textiles

  Steffen Schellenberger will defend his licentiate thesis entitled “Why Does It Always Rain On Me – Properties of Alternative Durable Water Repellent Chemicals for Textiles.” Environmental pollution caused by long-chain perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) – organic chemicals with confirmed levels of toxicity, a propensity for bioaccumulation and extreme environmental persistence – has given rise to global environmental concerns. Functional textiles …

Dependence of the Ice Water Content and Snowfall Rate on Temperature, Globally: Comparison of in-Sity Observations, Satellite Active Remote Sensing Retrievals and Glocal Climate Model Simulations

Cloud ice microphysical properties measured or estimated from in-situ aircraft observations are compared to global climate models and satellite active remote sensor retrievals. Two large data sets, with direct measurements of the ice water content (IWC) and encompassing data from polar to tropical regions, are combined to yield a large database of in-situ measurements. In his talk, Andrew will identify …
