Hey #weather research scientists! We are looking for your expertise! Are you interested in wind/temp profile at night? Are you using or wishing to use doppler on wheel? We could have something to propose to you! #severeweather #aeroecology #DOW 1/n
I'm a research scientist in #forest #ecology at the @cflscf (@NRCan). With a high-expertise team, we are looking at the dispersal patterns of the most important pests in eastern North American conifer forests: the #sprucebudworm. 2/
@cflscf @NRCan #Sprucebudworm #outbreaks occur every ca 30-40 years and can last 5 to 15 years. The last major outbreak (1969-92) covered 55 M ha (yes MILLIONS !) and resulted in tremendous losses in the forest sector. (below: area defoliated in 1975). 3/

Today we spent a chilly day out in the uMkhomazi catchment in the south of Kwa-Zulu Natal with a group of stakeholders who are mutually concerned about water security in the catchment #Water #SharedBenefits #SharedRisks
Why this catchment?
1. The Mkhomazi River is the 3rd largest river in KZN, with major infrastructure projects on the horizon #Water #InfrastructureDevelopment
2. It's identified as possible solution to long term water deficits in uMngeni catchment #WaterDemand #InfrastructureDevelopment

#Aarey facts #Activists don’t tell us

Environmental Impact Assessment (#EIA) report of having @MumbaiMetro3 carshed in #Aarey was prepared not by #MMRCL or any govt agencies but by a neutral #Japanese agency - #JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency)?

#AareyAikaNa
#Aarey Facts we don’t know 2

In Oct 2018, #MumbaiHC accepted govt’s argument that the #Aarey land will not be used for ANY #commercial project and a monitoring and supervising mechanism would be in place to ensure that the #conditions imposed on the MMRCL are met

#AareyAikaNa
#Aarey Facts we don’t know 3

Only #2 % of #Aarey land is used for #Metro

There are no #Adivasi padas nor #wildlife per se in the 30-hectare area, which is bound on 3 sides by major roads-
Jogeshwari-Vikhroli Link Rd
Marol-Maroshi road &
Goregaon-Mulund Link Road

In Springfield today to announce more than $7.9 million in grants from @NBRC_Team to boost job growth in #VT. These funds will help grow our workforce, repair our infrastructure & give Vermont workers new skills for the modern economy.
We chose Springfield for this announcement because of @BRICvt. Their coworking & incubation space, & goal of growing startups in VT, is the type of project I had in mind when I expanded NBRC in the #FarmBill so all of VT would be eligible. They are receiving a $235k grant.
Federal grants will support the redevelopment of Main St in @Winooskivt, infrastructure in Newport, Burke, St. Albans & Randolph. Childcare & workforce efforts supported by @LetsGrowKids & @VTRoundtable.

#OSHO

The moment you #renounce #responsibilities you also renounce #freedom. These are the complexities of life: freedom and responsibilities remain and go away together.

More you love freedom, more you will be ready to #accept responsibilities.
But outside the world, outside the #society, there is no possibility of any #responsibility. And it has to be remembered that all that we learn, we learn through being #responsible.
#Escaping to the #forest and the #mountains, you are simply escaping from a learning situation.

In a cave in the Himalayas you won’t have any responsibility, but remember, without #responsibility you cannot #grow; your #consciousness will remain #stuck.

Our latest #infographic for the @UofAALES #EMEND project is here! Check out the full infographic here (ow.ly/hjQs30nknje) or read more below! #scicomm #sciart @NSERC_CRSNG @EllenMac_UofA @charlesnock (1/8)
First of all, what is EMEND? This is a @NSERC_CRSNG funded experimental harvest area where researchers are able to study the effects of retention #harvest strategies on biodiversity, soil properties + more. (2/8)
'Retention harvest' means keeping some trees either individually or as patches after harvest. This might help improve #conservation of #biodiversity within the area & can be used to mimic natural disturbance patterns. (3/8)

Pues me voy a animar como dije el otro día a hacer un proyecto 365, pero en vez de haciendo fotos, editando fotos mías antiguas, random, basadas en el mood de cada día.
La única limitación que me voy a poner, va a ser el formato 1:1... A ver lo que sale xD
#365photochallenge
I´ll say it also in English :)
I´m gonna try a photography 365 project, but instead of taking photos, processing old random photos of mine...
Only one rule: the square format.
Let´s see what I got, which will be directly affected by the mood of the day...
