WSU EcoCAR 3 Open House
April 18 2015 at 1:00 PM
Please join the WSU EcoCAR 3 Team, the Hybrid Warriors at our Open House to learn about our team and how to get involved! EcoCAR 3 is a four year (2014-2018) student design competition that challenges 16 North American university teams to reduce the environmental impact of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro by converting it into a hybrid electric vehicle. EcoCAR 3 is a multidisciplinary program that provides real-world and hands-on experience to students studying engineering, communications and business. Many EcoCAR 3 students go on to receive internships or full-time positions based on their participation on the team! Open House Presentations EcoCAR 3 team members will be presenting on various projects and tasks ideally suited for real-world hands-on learning, as a continuation and expansion of the work they have been doing for the past year. · 1:00-1:15pm Project Initialization (overview of technical goals vehicle subsystems) · 1:15-1:30pm Mechanical Designs · 1:30-1:45pm Controls Designs · 1:45-2:00pm Systems Modeling & Simulation · 2:00-2:15pm Electrical Designs · 2:15-2:30pm Innovation · 2:30-2:45pm Communications/Outreach · 2:45-3:00pm Tradeshow · 3:00-3:15pm Project Management · 3:15-3:30pm Q&A Come out and learn about our team!

Water@Wayne Seminar with Mark Baskaran, Wayne State University
April 23 2015 at 2:30 PM
Welcome Center Auditorium
The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host the next Water@Wayne Seminar on Thursday, April 23, 2015 at 2:30 p.m. at Wayne State University's Welcome Center. The speaker will be Dr. Mark Baskaran, professor of Geology in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Wayne State University. He will present,"Impact of Fukushima Accident in the Environment – Lessons Learned." A reception will immediately follow in the Welcome Center Lobby. The seminar is free; registration is requested. Abstract: March 11, 2011 triple disaster, earthquake, tsunami and subsequent radiation releases at Fukushima Dai-ichi and their immediate impacts on human, environment and society were unprecedented in human history. In this presentation, an overview of studies of Fukushima-derived radionuclides in the atmosphere and ocean will be presented. The total amount of radioactivity released from Fukushima will be compared to natural amount present in the environment, amounts released from other nuclear accidents (Three Miles Island, Chernobyl) and other human-induced sources (nuclear reprocessing plants in U.K. and France). The temporal variations of radioactivity release and the concentrations of radio-cesium and –strontium in the coastal waters and biota near Fukushima over the past 4 years will be presented. The radiation dose received by fish in the coastal water near Fukushima will be compared to that from the natural radiation dose. Ocean currents carrying the Fukushima-derived radioactive substances are expected to arrive west coast of North America later this year, and its potential impact on human health will be presented. Brief Biosketch: Dr. Baskaran specializes in the study of environmental radioactivity as a tracer and chronometer in the oceans, lakes, atmosphere and terrestrial environment. His currently ongoing work includes studies of radioactive polonium and lead isotopes as tracers of particle cycling, remineralization in the Pacific and Arctic Oceans (funded by NSF), determination of ages of ice-rafted sediments and ice cores in the Arctic Ocean, sediment dynamics in the Dams in the Mid-Western United States (funded by USACE). His past work includes studies of fallout radionuclides in the Alaskan Arctic from Chernobyl and atmospheric release of radionuclides from Fukushima. Dr. Baskaran has served as a Technical Consultant to International Atomic Energy Agency, and he recently received Fulbright U.S. Scholar Award. He has published over 120 peer-reviewed journal articles, with over 4600 cumulative citations (Google Scholar, h-index of 40), and he has published a 2-volume edited set entitled “Handbook of Environmental Isotope Geochemistry” by Springer. Currently, he is a full professor in the Department of Geology and has adjunct position as a full professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
