AED To Host University of Rhode Island Department of Geosciences Class
NHEERL's Atlantic Ecology Division (AED) in Narragansett, RI, will host a facility tour on April 24, 2012, for the University of Rhode Island (URI), Department of Geosciences' class on Global Warming. The 19 students and URI staff are interested both in renewable energy technologies and in research related to climate change, such as impacts of sea level rise. They, too, want to learn about the rationale and successes of AED's wind turbines, photovoltaic panels, and vegetated roof installations. Also, AED's Cathleen Wigand will meet with the visitors to discuss NHEERL wetlands research. The tour is being coordinated by AED's Russ Ahlgren and Cathleen Wigand, with additional contributions from Mark Tagliabue.
