Reducing phosphorus (P) loading is a key management tool for controlling Lake Erie eutrophication. During the 1960s and 1970s, increased phosphorus inputs degraded water quality, stimulated algal blooms, and reduced central basin hypolimnetic oxygen to levels that eliminated thermal habitat vital to cold-water organisms and contributed to the extirpation of important benthic macro invertebrate prey species.

Water scarcity is an increasing problem throughout the world. Desalination has been deployed worldwide to expand the supply of freshwater, especially for coastal populations. But concerns remain about the energy consumption of the process. In this talk, Professor Lienhard will discuss research directed at understanding the causes of energy inefficiency in various desalination processes and efforts to adapt concepts from thermal engineering to improve the design of both thermal and membrane desalination...

This presentation will focus on a key component of the climate change assessment: the development of the Boston Harbor Flood Risk Model (BH-FRM). Examples of model output and interpretation will be presented. Results of this probabilistic model are currently being utilized for planning by many stakeholders and communities beyond MassDOT, and due to the success of the CA/T evaluation, the same methodology is now being applied to the entire coast of Massachusetts.
