A team of five Princeton engineering graduate students is leading a yearlong field research project using new laser sensors to measure pollutants with unprecedented sensitivity.
This video features cloud footage taken from a superfast research aircraft that includes a new laser-based sensor invented by Mark Zondlo to measure water vapor throughout the atmosphere.
Michael Celia, chair of the department of civil and environmental engineering and an investigator with the Carbon Mitigation Initiative at Princeton, discusses geological storage as an option for reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas that contributes to the problem of climate change. This lecture is part of a series on "engineering the future." Other topics include cryptography, sustainable energy, transportation systems, water ste
Robert R. Harris, co-founder of ENVIRON International and visiting lecturer at Princeton's School of Engineering and Applied Science, discusses "Putting the Roof on Greenhouse Gas Emissions." This lecture is part of a series on "engineering the future." Other topics include cryptography, sustainable energy, transportation systems, water stewardship, greenhouse gases, and the future of the internet. The series was developed by the Princeton Adult School in conjuncti
