The EDGE Institute
Environmental Dynamics and GeoEcology Institute
Global climate and environmental change, and the resulting degradation of ecosystems, pose some of the most vexing issues facing society today. While there is consensus among scientists that such change is happening, the coordinated interdisciplinary approach that would point toward solutions remains controversial in some circles. UCR’s College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences (CNAS) will be working towards building a team charged with studying some of these concerns through the Environmental Dynamics and GeoEcology (EDGE) Institute.
The Devirian Graduate Student Research Award
Michael Devirian’s career in the space program is the quintessential picture of a success, since graduating from UC Riverside in 1966 with a degree in physics.
Climatic records from southernmost South America are critical cornerstones to link Antarctic paleoclimatic archives with global climate. Ongoing debates over the sensitivity of global carbon cycle driven by iron (Fe) bioavailability in Southern Ocean are the center of studies to understand the global climate system.
