Mainak Mookherjee

Water covers about 70 percent of the Earth's surface, but scientists want to know how much lies inside the planet. A mineral called brucite may hold part of that answer, according to EOAS Assistant Professor Mainak Mookherjee. He and Andreas Hermann (University of Edinburgh) estimate that in the deep Earth  - roughly 250 to 370 miles into the mantle - water is stored and transported through a high-pressure from of the mineral brucite. It has been thought that brucite was not stable at that depth, but this new research shows that may not be true.

Jason Ducker

Graduate student Jason Ducker won an Early Career Poster Presentation Award at the 2016 International Global Atmospheric Chemistry Science Conference in Colorado. The conference, attended by 600 international scientists, awarded only 6 early career awards. His research, “Ozone Deposition to Forests Degrades Water-Use Efficiency Across Multiple Eocsystems,” used a worldwide network of monitoring sites to show that ozone interferes with the way that ecosystems use water.

New EOAS building

Groundbreaking for the new EOAS building was held Thursday. At completion, the seven-story, 130,536 square foot building will include 18 general research labs, 10 specialized research labs and 10 computer labs. There will also be equipment shops and storage space, plus a TV studio for meteorology students. There will also be a lecture hall that seats 280 people, an assembly room that seats 100 and six departmental conference rooms.
