DoD Information Day At UNM

The University of New Mexico recently welcomed Dr. Robin Staffin, Director of Basic Research, U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), to discuss DoD basic research programs and opportunities for faculty and students. The visit included meetings with University leadership, faculty and students about the on-going relationship between DoD and UNM. Faculty from across campus discussed their active research projects in DoD areas of interest including engineered biology, quantum information science, engineered optical materials, neuroscience, human and social behavior, political science and artificial intelligence/machine learning.

Warming news from Russia

A new paper by UNLV Geoscience graduate student Jon Baker has hot implications for the climate future of Russia. Baker, working with UNLV Geoscience Professor Matthew Lachniet and colleagues Yemane Asmerom and Victor Polyak at The University of New Mexico, and Russian colleagues, have produced an 11,000 year-long climate record from the Ural Mountains of Russia that shows nearly continuous warming from the end of the last Ice Age to the present.

Changing climate could have devastating impact on forest carbon storage

New research from a multi-university team of biologists shows what could be a startling drop in the amount of carbon stored in the Sierra Nevada mountains due to projected climate change and wildfire events.The study, “Potential decline in carbon carrying capacity under projected climate-wildfire interactions in the Sierra Nevada”, published this week in Scientific Reports, shows another facet of the impact current man-made carbon emissions will have on our world if big changes aren’t made.
