Workshop Proceedings

Although some Division-sponsored activities like workshops do not result in consensus reports, discussions at workshops and other events are often published in workshop summaries, websites, newsletters, and other formats to preserve and make publicly accessible the information or discussions from the event.

Management Models for Future Seismological and Geodetic Facilities and CapabilitiesProceedings of a Workshop (2019)

Modern geoscience research informs many important decisions and projects, such as geological disaster preparation, natural resource extraction, and global development. This critical research relies on technology and collaboration at state-of-the-art seismological and geodetic facilities. Currently, these facilities provide a wide variety of observation systems that support scientists' understanding of Earth and its changing environmental systems... More >>

Understanding Northern Latitude Vegetation Greening and Browning -- Proceedings of a Workshop (2019)

Vegetation change has been observed across Arctic and boreal regions. Studies have often documented large-scale greening trends, but they have also identified areas of browning or shifts between greening and browning over varying spatial extents and time periods. At the same time, though, there are large portions of these ecosystems that have not exhibited measurable trends in greening or browning. These findings have fueled many questions abou... More >>

Feasibility of Addressing Environmental Exposure Questions Using Department of Defense BiorepositoriesProceedings of a Workshop–in Brief (2019)

The past decade has seen advancements in methods for measuring environmental exposures in biological specimens, such as blood or tissue. Chemicals can now be measured more accurately and with smaller volumes of specimens. Biorepositories that store many biospecimens are maintained by the Department of Defense (DoD) for medical purposes. To help determine the feasibility of using these biorepositories to conduct research on environmental an... More >>

Geologic Capture and Sequestration of Carbon: Proceedings of a Workshop -- in Brief (2018)

Geologic carbon capture and sequestration encompasses approaches for relatively permanent storage of carbon in the Earth's geologic formations. Carbon dioxide (CO2) that has been captured from flue gas or other waste streams as pressurized fluids can be trapped geologically through thermodynamically favorable reactions between CO2 and silicate rocks to create stable mineral carbonates. This mineralized carbon is stored permanently i... More >>

Data Science Opportunities to Transform Chemical Sciences and Engineering: Proceedings of a Workshop -- in Brief (2018)

New technologies and approaches are generating large, diverse data sets, and data science offers the tools that are needed to interrogate, analyze, and manage these data sets. Biology, material sciences, and other fields have embraced data science tools and used them to gain insights into, for example, gene-environment interactions, molecular mechanisms of disease, and implications of material characteristics on performance. Chemical sciences an... More >>
