Fall OU-GHG Seminar = Thurs 6-8pm, course # TBA

Hello from the Ecological Society of America's Annual National Meeting in San Jose CA!

I have been working with Dr. Michele Morrone (the director of Environmental Studies) to make a fall 2-credit seminar come together on the topic of OU's GHG inventory. I hope you guys can attend/enroll? Either way, there will be close coordination between the GHG Team, EEC, and the student experience in this seminar.

I have requested the course time to be Thurs evenings, 6-8pm. Here's the course blurb:

ES XXX: Ohio University's Greenhouse Gas Footprint: Theory and Applications.
Instructor: Dr Kim J. Brown, OU-PBIO Asst. Prof. (

In the context of both voluntary guidelines as well as state-level mandates, Ohio University is in the process of evaluating its energy and greenhouse gas footprint. This is an applied process that includes aspects of engineering, accounting, economics, and biology. Students enrolled in this seminar will gain marketable, hands-on experience in the analysis of the policy and applications of helping a huge institution like OU quantify their carbon footprint. OU needs YOU!
