The need to balance energy demands, economic growth, climate change mitigation and access to affordable and clean water animated discussions at this year’s annual retreat for Princeton E-ffiliates Partnership, the corporate affiliates program administered by Princeton University's Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment.
The Lean Launchpad, a system for starting successful businesses, is driving faculty and student ventures and will be the basis of the Keller Center's upcoming eLab summer accelerator program.
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.
Mark Zondlo and his research team frequently find themselves 45,000 feet above the Earth looking for water vapor in the upper reaches of the atmosphere. From a seat in a National Science Foundation (NSF) research jet, the engineers can search a slice of the sky for pollutants and gases that play a role in climate change. Zondlo, an assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering, said that water plays a greater role in climate change than many people imagine. “If we want to un
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.
One of the instruments on a superfast research craft mapping the Earth's atmosphere was invented by Princeton's Mark Zondlo to measure water vapor. "In discussions about global warming, carbon dioxide and methane get all the attention, but water vapor impacts climate more than any other gas," says Zondlo.
