AAAS meeting features research by sustainability scientists

AAAS-sustainability-scientistsThis year's annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science - the world’s largest science and technology society - featured research from ASU sustainability scientists. Topics ranged from the sustainable intensification of food production, as discussed by geographer B. L. Turner II in a panel symposium, to the sequestering of atmospheric carbon dioxide through ranching techniques, an idea  being explored by Peter Byck and his SoilCarbon Nation team. Additionally, Nadya Bliss - an assistant vice president for research strategy in the Office of Knowledge Enterprise Development - is working with science historian Manfred Laubichler to develop a set of mathematical techniques to detect patterns in networks that point to the emergence of innovation in research. The annual meeting draws thousands of scientists, engineers, educators, policymakers and journalists from around the world.
