Research from Professor Elfatih Eltahir and former postdoc Ross Alter was featured in Science Magazine. The news article about the CEE study, entitled “The United States’s Corn Belt is making its own weather,” discusses how agriculture had a major on regional changes in climate among the Midwestern United States. Alter and several independent researchers were interviewed for the article, based on research published in Geophysical Research Letters. Read more here.

Associate Professor and Associate Department Head of CEE Colette Heald participated in the Global Food+ symposium on February 16. Heald spoke about the impact of particulate matter on crops, particularly maize, wheat and rice. The symposium featured lectures on food, agriculture, environment and health, and was hosted by Tufts University.
