When it comes to global warming, most people worry about power plants. Claire White thinks about another kind of plant — those that make cement.
"Cement production and cement powder are a major component of greenhouse gas emissions," said White, an assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering and the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University. "It accounts for between 5 and 8 percent of human-made carbon dioxide."
The deadline for the 2014 Princeton University Art of Science competition is Monday, April 7. The exhibit, which explores the interplay between science and art, consists of images produced during the course of scientific inquiry that have aesthetic merit.
In his annual holiday lecture, Professor Howard Stone and his assistants used high-speed cameras, high-tech amplifiers and a host of audience participants to unveil the surprising way the world really works when things move faster than the eye can see.
