  • On Christmas Eve, 1968, the NASA crew on Apollo 8 took the Earthrise photograph, the first photo of the earth from the perspective of the moon. It was immediately influential, and the first Earth Day followed soon after, in the spring of 1970.

    Please join Bruce Clarke, Baruch S. Blumberg NASA/Library of Congress Chair in Astrobiology, who will moderate a discussion on the rich cultural impact of the photo on the US space program and the environmental movement.

    A display and reception will follow the discussion.

  • Public Lecture: Sea Level Rise from Melting Ice Sheets, and What We Should Do About It

    How are melting ice sheets causing sea level rise and what can we do about it?  The ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica, along with glaciers and ice caps around the world, are melting faster than anticipated as a result of climate change caused by greenhouse gases from human activities. This rapid evolution--resulting from complex interactions between the atmosphere, the ocean, and ice--has been captured in great detail by a growing body of observational platforms that include satellites, aircraft, underwater floats, and autonomous gliders. In this talk, Dr. Eric Rignot will cover how and why the ice sheets are melting and what we can do about it. Practical solutions exist that are economically viable and ethically desirable, including transforming our energy production system and developing scalable carbon sequestration strategies. At stake is whether the world will be irreversibly committed to a multiple meter rise in sea level with potentially catastrophic consequences.

    Date and Time: Wednesday, March 27, 2019 at 7:00 pm ET

    Location: National Academy of Sciences Building, 2101 Constitution Ave., N.W., Washington, DC, 20418

    If you can't attend in person, we invite you to register on this site to participate remotely.

    The talk is part of Space Science Week 2019—a three-day gathering of five subcommittees of the Space Studies Board, the Aeronautics and Space Engineering Board, and the Board on Physics and Astronomy to discuss issues and advances in their fields.  Inquiries may be directed to spaceweek@nas.edu.





    Eric Rignot


    Eric Rignot is the Donald Bren Professor of Earth System Science, Chair of the Department of Earth System Science, School of Physical Sciences at the University of California, Irvine, and a Senior Research Scientist at Caltech’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Dr. Rignot’s research interests include glaciology, ice dynamics, ice-ocean interaction, climate change, ice/ocean numerical modeling, remote sensing, and field work. One goal of his research group is to better understand the interaction of ice and climate to yield realistic projections of the contribution of ice sheets to sea level rise. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and has received NASA Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medals, the NASA Outstanding Leadership Medal, the Louis Agassiz Division Medal of the European Geophysical Union, and the Nobel Peace Prize with co-authors of IPCC AR4 in 2007. His research has been covered by the Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, BBC, Arte, CNN, PBS/NOVA, National Geographic, Rolling Stones, and the New York Times. He has been featured in “An Inconvenient Sequel” (2018), HBO VICE News (2015), “Chasing Ice” (2012) and “Naked Science” (2004).

  • Each spring we host our annual capstone event, the GWWIB Spring Conference, a professional gathering organized by students, for students. The Spring Conference started in 2010 to provide students an opportunity to learn more about different careers and industries. The daylong conference begins with a distinguished keynote speaker and speaker series, then leads into a series of workshops and industry focused panels. The conference hosts around 12 panels that range from finance to fashion to food management.

    This past year, our 9th Annual Spring Conference brought together over 350 attendees and more than 100 professionals across a variety of industries to network and encourage students to forge their own career paths. The 3 keynotes included Tara Abrahams (Executive Director of The Girl Project at Glamour), Kunal Mehta (Venture Investor with Hearst Ventures and author of Disruptors), Lauren Wilner (Vice-President of Women’s Fashion and Director of RTW+ and Beauty at Macy’s Inc.). The event also featured a speaker series with talks from Kim Jackson (Senior Director of Merchandising at Alex and Ani) and Cameron Hardesty (Head of Merchandising at UrbanStems). The panels featured speakers from a diverse group of companies including NASA, Tradeweb, Deloitte, National Geographic, ESPN, Whole Foods, IBM , SKIN&CO, Ernst & Young and Empowered Women International, among many more.

    This year we will host our 10th Spring Conference on April 6th, 2019 in Funger and Duques Halls on GWU’s Campus in Washington, DC.

    A Year along the Geostationary Orbit

    Himawari 8, Japan's most advanced meteorological satellite, travels 35,786 km above Earth, at more than 11000 km/h. It observes the Eastern Hemisphere day and night. For one year we look through the eyes of the distant observer. From solstice to solstice, from pole to pole, from storm to storm, we watch Earth's beauty and fragility, weather's wonders, forces, and disasters. From space, it all looks miraculous.

    How the World Looks Now

    This narrative short explores the poetic effects of NASA's Apollo 8 mission and its 1968 Earthrise photo on the life of a retired English teacher -- and on the astronauts themselves. This was the first time in human history we had an image of the Earth from outer space. "We were the first humans to see the world in its majestic totality," as one of the astronauts said, "and we felt small and immensely large at the same time.”

    Earthrise

    Told solely by the Apollo 8 astronauts, this film celebrates the first image captured of the Earth from space, in 1968. The iconic image had a powerful impact on the astronauts and the world, offering a perspective that transcended national, political, and religious boundaries. Fifty years later, this shift still challenges us to reflect on the Earth as a shared home. The astronauts recount their memories of the beauty, awe, and grandeur of the Earth against the blackness of space.

  • Around the world, the number and intensity of heat waves are on the rise; the last three decades have seen the warmest years on record. Efforts to better understand and manage the risks of extreme heat on human well-being are important. Rising temperatures can create deadly conditions for many vulnerable populations, especially the elderly, infants and young children, pregnant women, those with chronic health challenges or disabilities, and those who work outside. When combined with other conditions such as drought, heat waves can threaten food security, increase demand for water and energy, and strain public services.

     

    The March Adaptation Community Meeting will focus on global efforts to better understand and respond to increasingly frequent and severe heat waves and their impacts on human health. The event will include a summary of USAID’s work to capture knowledge about heat waves and heath and efforts to address this challenge. The event will also feature a roundtable discussion on the outcomes of the first global forum of the Global Heat Health Information Network (GHHIN) to accelerate learning and action to address the health risks of extreme heat. Presentations will cover the following topics:

     

    • Overview of the Global Heat Health Information Network (GHHIN), its goals and outputs of the first forum.
    • USAID’s work on heat and health, including a recent USAID Adaptation Thought Leadership and Assessment (ATLAS) project report on Heat Waves and Human Health: Emerging Evidence and Experience to Inform Risk Management in a Warming World.
    • Red Cross’ work in urban heat in developing nations.
    • The state of play in the science of forecasting heat wave early warnings from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

     

    About the Speakers:

     

    Hunter Jones is a Climate and Health Projects Manager within the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate Program Office (CPO) serving as a UCAR CPAESS Affiliate. He is currently leading sevarl pilots of the National Integrated Heat Health Information System (NIHHIS) along the U.S. Mexico border, and in the Northeast, to improve climate and health information for enhanced heat-health resilience. He is a founding member of the Global Heat Health Information Network (GHHIN), serves on its steering committee, and helped plan the first GHINN forum in Hong Kong in December 2018.

     

    Pete Epanchin is a climate adaptation specialist with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). He is currently with the Bureau for Economic Growth, Education, and Environment (E3). In that role, he co-leads a global partnership with NASA which fosters local capacity to use Earth-observation satellite data to address challenges in water resource management and hydro-climatic disasters, food security, and land use, land use change, and ecosystem management. Previously, Pete has worked at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on the development of accounting methodologies for carbon dioxide emissions from various renewable fuels including forest-derived biomass, agricultural biomass, and municipal waste. He has served as a biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, implementing the Endangered Species Act. Pete holds a Ph.D. in ecology from UC Davis; his scientific research has focused on species' responses to climate change and to invasive species.

    Roop Singh is a Climate Risk Advisor for the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre working at the intersection of climate and society where she provides decision support to disaster managers in six regional offices linked to 190 National Societies to access, interpret and use climate risk information for decision-making. She plays a knowledge brokering role by working with scientists to conduct research that is relevant for disaster managers (e.g. attribution and risk analysis of extreme events), as well as translating key scientific publications (e.g. IPCC’s Special Report on 1.4 degrees) for use by practitioners and policy makers. As part of the Climate Centre’s urban team she focuses on extreme heat including by developing a global city Heatwave Guide for city managers and working to fill key research gaps on the impacts of extreme heat in Africa and Asia. Roop holds a Master’s in climate and society from Columbia University and a Bachelor’s in atmospheric science from Cornell University.

     

    Dr. Wassila Mamadou Thiaw is a meteorologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Team Leader for the Climate Prediction Center (CPC)’s International Desks. He was a National Academy of Sciences (NAS)/National Research Council (NRC) post doctorate fellow at NOAA. He has worked extensively on monitoring and forecasting for Africa and the tropics. The CPC International Desks support the U.S. government humanitarian mission overseas, especially food security and disaster risk reduction. He recently initiated a project to develop climate information relevant to the health sector, including heat waves, and vector borne diseases. He has served on the American Meteorological Society (AMS) Council and currently serves in other AMS and World Meteorological Organization (WMO) committees. Dr. Thiaw holds a B.S. in meteorology from University of Dakar, Senegal and a Ph.D. from University Clermont-Ferrand-II, France.
