ALBANY, N.Y. (October 29, 2012) – From tropical glacier melt in the Andes to flood-ravaged New Orleans, changing climate patterns have had a dramatic impact on communities all over the world. Recently, scientists and students at the University at Albany presented "a virtual field trip" to highlight their research and studies on climate change and sustainability.
"Our goal is to heighten campus awareness about the issue of climate change and its impact in other parts of the world through the eyes of our own faculty and students,” said Mary Ellen Mallia, director of the Office of Environmental Sustainability at UAlbany.
