The Fort Stewart Fire Research Campaign was an integrative research effort that collected data on Fire Behavior, Fuels, and Smoke during a series of prescribed burns at Fort Stewart. Dr. Marcus Williams, a Research Meteorologist at the USFS Athens Fire Lab, was the discipline lead for Micrometeorology and a member of the Smoke measurement discipline. He is seen here observing PM2.5 concentration levels on a small handheld measurement device.…

Four UGA Geography faculty have joined to move mountain studies further, with the support of two competitive seed grant programs on campus. The group led by our department's very own Dr. Fausto Sarmiento includes faculty from Arts and Sciences, Environment + Design, Forestry, Horticulture, Ecology, and Journalism. The TIR program from the Vice President of Research will allow for the preparation of a large grant to create the…

Recent work from graduate student Alison Banks and professor Gabriel Kooperman demonstrates how climate change may impact future air quality. 

Biomass and fossil fuel burning impact air quality by injecting fine particulate matter (PM2.5) and its precursors into the atmosphere, which poses serious threats to human health. However, the surface concentration of PM2.5 depends not only on the magnitude of emissions, but also secondary…

UGA Geography's David Leigh and a team of researchers review and synthesize spatially extensive studies of oligotrophic mountain streams in the rural Southern Appalachian Mountains, concluding that rural land-use activities significantly degrade water quality through altered and mostly enhanced landscape–stream connections, despite high forest retention. Some connections are controlled by near-stream land-use activities, whereas others are…

It’s not just student-athletes who need guidelines for heat protection during practice. This time of year, you hear a lot about heat-related illnesses in athletes. Thousands of student-athletes are sidelined by heat illnesses each year, and some don’t recover. But while guidelines exist to help coaches and trainers keep their students safe, there’s another group on the field that’s still at risk: students in marching bands. Research led by Dr…
