'Air Pollution in a Changing World' at Next Clarkson University Science Cafe

"Air Pollution in a Changing World" will be presented by Clarkson University Professor of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering Suresh Dhaniyala at the next Clarkson University Science Cafe at 7:15 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 17, in the Park View Common Room, above the Blackbird Cafe, 107 Main St. in Canton, N.Y., and at 7:15 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 18, at the St. Lawrence Valley Roasters & Jernabi Coffeehouse, 11 Maple St. in Potsdam, N.Y.

Suresh DhaniyalaHow do we define the quality of our air? How much of our air quality is dependent on what we do locally versus regionally or even globally? With the global migration of industrial activity, development of new emission control technologies and changes in global climate, what can we expect for air quality changes in our neighborhood and around the globe? Join Dhaniyala as he describes the current air quality standards and the evolution of U.S. air quality over the last several decades and changes in global air quality currently underway.

Science Cafes bring together engineers, scientists and townspeople in a relaxed, informal setting, such as coffeehouses and pubs. The speaker makes a short presentation about a topic in his or her field, and then opens up the floor to discussion.

Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in five alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world’s pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and the health professions, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
