From extreme drought to super storms, many wonder what the future holds for the climate of the eastern United States. A study conducted by researchers at UT does away with the guessing. Results show the region will be hotter and wetter. Joshua Fu, a civil and environmental engineering professor, and Yang Gao, a graduate research assistant, developed precise scales of cities which act as a climate crystal ball seeing high resolution climate changes almost fifty years into the future.
How likely is a new teenage driver to trade in his or her keys for an electric bike? That’s a question some UT professors are trying to answer. Together, professors from four different departments within the College of Engineering have won a $15,000 grant from the US Environmental Protection Agency. The grant is phase one of the EPA’s People, Prosperity and the Planet annual student design competition, which offers students quality hands-on experience that brings their classroom learning to life.
