CCE Sustainability Lab Hosts Interdisciplinary Workshop on Poverty in Nepali Brick Kiln Communities

December 01, 2023 11:30 AM
Since the fall of 2022, Students and Faculty in the Civil and Construction Engineering (CCE) Sustainability Lab have been working with our counterparts in Public Health, Cell Biology, Nutrition, and Nursing to understand better the challenges of extremely low-income communities that suffer from near-constant exposure to hazardous air in the brick kiln factories of Nepal. In March of this year, the CCE team, supported in part by the Weidman Center, participated in a field study to better understand and measure potential driving factors and outcomes that individuals and families experience. In the months following, faculty and students from Kathmandu University’s Community Development program collaborated with the team to continue this investigation.

November 10, 2023 01:31 PM
Professors Norm Jones and Jim Nelson have been selected as joint recipients of the Brigham Young University 2023 Sponsored Projects Recognition Award. Both professors are recognized as pioneers in scientific visualization, water resources modeling and hydroinformatics. In collaborations spanning three decades they have received $21.6M in external funding from the Army Corps of Engineers, the Federal Highways Administration, NSF, NASA, NOAA, and others leading to 132 publications. They have developed desktop and cloud applications used by thousands of organizations worldwide and founded the Provo-based software and engineering company Aquaveo. They have advised 18 PhD, 150 MS, and hundreds of undergraduate students. They gratefully acknowledge these students, numerous colleagues and mentors, their families, and the unique mission of BYU for their success.

Analysis of Irrigation by Remote Sensing (AIRS) supports water sustainability

October 05, 2023 10:36 AM
On urban parcels in particular, irrigation is difficult to measure and manage because of so many variables in landscape size, shape, quality, and water use behavior. Annelise Capener, a graduate student in the Sustainability Lab, is studying how remote sensing can help.
