Matt Berzonsky, a junior Environmental Engineering student, has a summer internship working as a member of the Climate Science REU (research experience for undergraduates) at Penn State University. His primary focus is to study carbon dioxide emissions from cities and more specifically, to quantify agricultural background emissions. He is also researching possible global solutions to climate change with other students and faculty members. Pictured below is Matt doing an alkalinity titration on water collected during a project at SFU (on the left), and Matt winning our 2020 outstanding freshman award last spring.

This summer, Environmental Engineer Tyler Gobert will be an intern at the Baruch Marine Field Laboratory, which is a part of the University of South Carolina. He will be participating in research in the North Inlet and Winyah Bay estuaries with a focus on floating treatment wetlands. This will be to determine the sustainability of wetland plants and fully biodegradable floating treatment wetland designs in brackish and freshwater systems.

Here's a photo of Tyler and some oysters he collected while visiting the lab during the spring break 2020, right before the pandemic shut us all down!

I really enjoy this page for its support of positive messages about our environment! In an effort to educate myself more on sustainable living and promote ways to help our environment, I came across a page for the upcoming Netflix documentary "Kiss the Ground" directed by Rebecca and Josh Tickell, two inspiring environmentalists. This movie explains how effective and feasible regenerative agricultural practices can bring CO2 back into the soil and reverse the effects of climate change. With the help of celebrities such as Woody Harrelson, Ian Somerhalder, and Patricia Arquette, this film looks to be an inspiration to people who want to take part in revitalizing the planet. After watching the Youtube trailer, I haven't been able to stop thinking about this film and the impact it can have on everyone who watches it. I thought that this group, like myself, would be interested in the virtual watch party and Q&A on September 22nd!
Congratulations! Mr. Andrew Ferko (ENVE 2020) has passed his Fundamentals of Engineering exam and is now officially and EIT. Great job, Andrew!
Hey students! The summer 2019 meeting of the American Society of Mining and Reclamation is June 3-7 at Big Sky, Montana (right next to Yellowstone National Park)! I'm going to help fund students to get there because it is a cool opportunity. Talk to me about it!
