Join leading researchers as they provide information about our nation's valuable resources, and identify research that can help guide the conservation and recovery of these vital systems. As the general public and policy makers expand their discussions and interest in these resources, this webinar is timed to provide necessary information.
On Tuesday, Oct. 5, from 3:30 to 4:30 pm (EDT), a Wetlands Webinar discussing the value of wetlands in serving as a buffering system to the impacts of extreme events such as hurricanes, floods, fire, and oil spills will be presented.The panel of experts on the wetlands webinar will include:
• Dr. Daniel R. Petrolia of the Department of Agricultural Economics at Mississippi State University
The complimentary webinar is sponsored by the Council on Food, Agricultural and Resource Economics (C-FARE) and Soil Science Society of America (SSSA).
"Many of today's important scientific and societal questions are best addressed from a multi-disciplinary perspective," stated Jon Brandt, C-FARE Chair. "Our organizations are enthusiastic about working together to present cutting edge information to policy makers, researchers and user groups."
"The nation’s wetlands are an eco-resource on which we all depend for safe water supplies, wildlife habitat, flood regulation, and many other benefits. The researchers participating in this web-based seminar are leaders in this field," says Paul Bertsch, Past President of the Soil Science Society of America. "They will provide useful information as we seek ways to maintain the wetlands on which we all depend."
Registration is free but space is limited. Please visit the following website to register for the webinar: https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/924334986. After registering you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
The Council on Food, Agricultural, and Resource Economics (C-FARE) is a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening the national presence of the agricultural economics profession. C-FARE's governing board includes prominent agricultural economists representing a wide range of public and private sector interests.
The Soil Science Society of America (SSSA) is a progressive, international scientific society that fosters the transfer of knowledge and practices to sustain global soils. Based in Madison, WI, and founded in 1936, SSSA is the professional home for 6,000+ members dedicated to advancing the field of soil science, providing information about soils in relation to crop production, environmental quality, ecosystem sustainability, bioremediation, waste management, recycling, and wise land use.

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
