EES publishes: Dr.Brian Brigham publishes study on Anthropogenic inputs from a coastal megacity’s link to greenhouse gas concentrations in the surrounding estuary

On 01, Oct 2019 | In Publications | By Author on Source

This paper by Brian Brigham and Dr. Jeffery Bird of CUNY EES. published in the journal /Limnology and Oceanography/is part of a set of three that has quantified the climate impact (i.e., greenhouse gas emissions) that come from combined sewage overflow dumped into the NYC Hudson River Estuary every year.
This very important work quantitatively links the pollution from NYC to the enhanced greenhouse gas footprint of the Hudson River Estuary. The paper is also a deep dive into the existing literature on how coastal cities affect climate change.

Shaping the Future of Urban Research

In April of 2020, UAA returns to Washington, D.C. to celebrate its 50th anniversary of annual meetings. The Opening Plenary of the 2020 conference will address the theme, “The State of Urban Affairs and the State of Urban Affairs Research.” This theme sets the stage for the overarching goals of the conference, which are: 1) to better understand our past, 2) to assess current realities, and 3) to create visions for the future that support a global urban research agenda.  The conference will provide opportunities to assess urban affairs as a field and to develop ideas for enhancing its long-term prospects and impacts. We encourage proposals for paper, panel, colloquy and roundtable sessions to stimulate thinking and re-thinking of urban affairs, and to widen intellectual and professional networks.
