Limiting Landfill Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Landfills are never going to be anyone’s favorite landscape feature. But there may be a way to move them down the “not in my backyard” list. Nebraska researchers are studying how to remediate gas emissions from landfills with an innovative ground-covering system. Jongwan Eun, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering, and Yunwoo Nam, associate […]

Imaging Tool Rapidly Assesses Seed Quality

Improving agriculture in a world that’s heating up and drying out isn’t solely about increasing yields. Nutritional quality is also crucial. While measuring yield is as easy as weighing grain, what’s inside seeds is harder to discern. To help improve the nutritional value of crops undergoing heat stress, Nebraska agronomist Harkamal Walia teamed with computer […]

Looking Back for Future Climate Clues

The world is entering uncharted territory with climate change. Scientists and policymakers are scrambling to pinpoint what’s happening, where we’re headed and how to respond. Nebraska paleontologist Ross Secord is among them. With a nearly $350,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, he’s pursuing a first-of-its-kind study that explores how climate change affected the environment, […]

Exploring Ag, Climate Resilience Through Collaboration

A collaborative international “network of networks” aims to explore agricultural and climate resilience and food and water security as never before. Nebraska ecologists Craig Allen and Tala Awada head a team that received a four-year, $400,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to establish the Network for Integrated Agricultural Resilience Research. The network will generate […]
