New Article - A new nanobubble discovery

Dr. Apul published a collaborative journal article in Journal of Colloid and Interface Science with Garcia-Segura group of Arizona State University. This study is entitled: "Elucidating CO2 nanobubble interfacial reactivity and impacts on water chemistry" and reveals the first evidence of buffering capacity when CO2 bubbles are 'pulverized' to submicron sizes. Congratulations Gabriel!

Girl Scouts of Maine visited Environmental Engineering

Girl Scouts of Maine visited our campus to learn about microplastic pollution. Prof. Ross and her research group supported the event and all students participated in 'bubble estuary microplastic hunt', 'hydraulic wave tank microplastic observation' and 'crayon drawing event'. All activities were sponsored by Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors. Our students had a blast with this activity. Hope to see girl scouts again on campus next year!
