The Carbon Cycle: Indiana and the World Breathe Together - A Fall 2012 Update

Dr. Faiz RahmanAdults are invited as Indiana University geography professor Dr. Faiz Rahman returns to present new results of his NASA-funded carbon cycle research in the Morgan Monroe State Forest during the program, "The Carbon Cycle: Indiana and the World Breathe Together," on Tuesday, October 30 at 6 p.m. at the Glendale Branch, 6101 N. Keystone Avenue.

Learn how the early spring and record summer heat are affecting forest productivity and how the research can influence key public policy decisions. Dr. Rahman is principal investigator of two large NASA research projects. In a highly-visual presentation, he will share an updated overview of what we know, and what we still don’t know, about the carbon cycle. He will also discuss research on other forested areas in the U.S. and in rapidly-disappearing mangrove swamps in southeast Asia.

Dr. Rahman will return in spring 2013 to share what he and his team are learning in their research and why it matters to residents of Indiana. His presentations offer a fascinating glimpse into science and its impact on our daily lives.

This program is co-sponsored by NASA, Indiana University and the Monroe County Public Library.
