Community Vulnerability Mapping Approach to Evaluate the Risk of Releases from Contaminated Sites and Waste Management Facilities due to Extreme Events
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : Apr 29, 2021]
When extreme events (extreme heat, floods, droughts, wildfires) happen, hazardous materials or contaminants may be accidentally released from sites and waste facilities creating further hazards for surrounding communities. Understanding community vulnerabilities underlies prepare...
Coral reef water quality: Systematic evidence maps
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : Apr 29, 2021]
This project would seek to develop a systematic understanding of the existing body of quantitative information relating water quality measurements to coral ecosystem health. The goal would be to comprehensively synthesize the available literature on a specific set of select water...
Diets Enriched with Coconut, Fish, and Olive Oil Modify Peripheral Metabolic Effects of Ozone in Rats
(JOURNAL) [Published : Jan 01, 2021]
Dietary factors may modulate metabolic effects of air pollutant exposures. We hypothesized that diets enriched with coconut oil (CO), fish oil (FO), or olive oil (OO) would alter ozone-induced metabolic responses. Male Wistar-Kyoto rats (1-month-old) were fed normal diet (ND), or...
