The Graduate School recently awarded a Student/Faculty Research award to CEE’s John D. Tickle Professor Joshua Fu and his doctoral student Jiani Tan. The award provides up to $5,000 to student/faculty pairs to further their research goals.
Fu and Tan’s research project is titled “Are Emission Abatement Policies Alleviating the Exceedance of Atmospheric Deposition over the Terrestrial Ecosystems?—A Case Study for Conterminous US.” It aims to study the effectiveness of the current and past emission control strategies on alleviating the excess of atmospheric deposition over the terrestrial ecosystems of the US.
“It’s my great honor to receive the SFRA,” said Tan. “This award is a huge recognition of our previous studies, and at the same time, a brilliant start for our future research.”
“I thank the Graduate School’s support for Jiani’s research that will elaborate future global atmospheric deposition with impacts on forests, crops, and ecosystems, including the nexus between water and food,” said Fu.
The results of this study will help provide suggestions for the development of emission abatement policies in the future.
