Keene State Presents: Open College Tuesday, February 19, 6-7:30 p.m., Rhodes S203
Where there’s fire, there’s smoke! Updates on wintertime air pollution trends in Keene and public health impacts
Dr. Nora Traviss will discuss wintertime air pollution trends in Keene. Our city sits in a valley and often experiences air inversions on cold, calm nights with little wind. This can lead to a buildup of harmful particulate matter from wood smoke in the valley. Keene State is part of a community effort to share pollution data through real-time mapping and social media. This lecture will cover recent research and actions that residents can take to improve air quality. Public outreach videos completed by Keene State students will also be shared.
Open College presentations are free and open to the public.
Mark your calendar for March 19 and April 16 presentations.
Registration for Summer 2019 will begin on February 25. New classes are being added daily! View the current list of classes.
