Seminars This Week | Sensing Stress; Better Tech in the Wild

Two seminars are scheduled this week in Hardin Hall, beginning with the SNR Seminar Series on Wednesday, Sept. 19. The Applied Ecology seminar series made a late change to its schedule, but still plans to host a talk on Friday, Sept. 28. The Geography series resumes next week on Oct. 5.

On Wednesday, three UNL faculty members will address "Remote Sensing, Water Stress, and Things that Go Bump in the Night," in Hardin Hall, room 901, at 3:30 p.m. Arthur Zygielbaum, Timothy Arkebuaer and Elizabeth Walter-Shea collaborate to explain how their recent work could be used to remote sense plant stress levels and influence climate change modeling.
