(September 18, 2023) Welcome to the new Atmospheric Biogeochemistry URAP cohort for fall 2023. These 5 undergraduates join the laboratory with a variety of backgrounds and majors, all bringing with them a commitment to careful scientific research, intellectual curiosity, and academic excellence.
(September 16, 2023) In this interdisciplinary study just published in Communications Earth & Environment, former visiting scholar Dr. Wanying Zhang et al. report how the Antarctic tundra shifts from a sink to a source of carbonyl sulfide (OCS) under the influence of sea animal colonies.
(August 17, 2023) Rob Rhew is pleased to join the editorial board of Biogeosciences.
(August 1, 2023) In the Fall Semester, Prof. Rhew will be offering Geog 143 (Global Change Biogeochemistry), NatRes 24 (Global Environment Theme House), and UGIS 192D (Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship Program).
(July 1, 2023) Dr. Robert Rhew has been appointed as faculty co-chair of the Asian American and Pacific Islander Standing Committee (AAPISC)
(March 17, 2023) Just published: new collaborative paper by Chen et al. detailing the unique biogeochemistry of South Carolina ghost forests that experience increased saltwater intrusion associated with sea level rise, appearing in the inaugural issue of Soil & Environmental Health.
(December 31, 2022) This fall was a busy teaching semester. Professor Rhew taught 3 classes this fall, and was fortunate to co-teach the two major courses with outstanding instructors: Communicating Climate Science (Geog 147 with Emily Weiss), Introduction to Environmental Science (ESPM 15 with Dr. Patina Mendez) and the Global Environment Theme House seminar (NatRes24).
(July 1, 2022) Rob completed his 5-year appointment as the Faculty Director of the Central Sierra Field Stations (Sagehen Creek Field Station, Central Sierra Snow Lab, Onion Creek Experimental Forest, North Fork Association Lands, and the Chickering Reserve).
(March 31, 2022) We are delighted to report that Dr. Yi Jiao (PhD 2021) is a recipient of the prestigious Marie Curie fellowship to support his postdoctoral research at the University of Copenhangen, Denmark.
(March 29, 2022) Robs presentation to the UCB Learning in Retirement Seminar series discussed how the Central Sierra Field Stations are currently working towards understanding and addressing major environmental issues facing California, with a focus on severe wildfires and climate change.
