The world continues to experience the day-to-day impact of supply chain issues. Laurie Garrow, a professor of civil engineering and co-director of the Center for Urban and Regional Air Mobility at Georgia Tech, offers insight into what consumers can expect this holiday season in terms of air travel demand, airline operations, and tips for consumer travel planning.
The cycle of rising temperatures leads to increases in precipitation as well as droughts. But what impact will these weather extremes, especially heavier precipitation, have on the earth’s most effective water cleansers – wetland sediments?

Sixteen College of Engineering faculty members have three or more Georgia Tech degrees and have made their alma mater home again, and Professor Susan Burns from the School of Civil and Environmental Engineerings is one of these three-time Georgia Tech alums.
The Chinese-American Professors in Environmental Engineering and Science (CAPEES) Society has recognized faculty members Yongsheng Chen and Xing Xie for their dedication and service to environmental engineering and science.
Assistant Professor Jennifer Kaiser is leading one of 11 projects to receive funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate Program Office’s Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, and Climate (AC4) program in Fiscal Year 2021. The competitively selected projects aim to increase our understanding of emissions and chemical transformation in the urban atmosphere.
Georgia Institute of Technology Professor Nga Lee “Sally” Ng has earned a $12 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) Mid-Scale Research Infrastructure program to provide high time-resolution (every 1 to 15 minutes), long-term measurements of the properties of atmospheric particulates known as aerosols, which have significant effects on health and climate change.
For students hoping to establish a career in academia, the various demands and expectations of holding a professorship can be daunting. It’s one reason Georgia Tech’s College of Engineering partnered with the University of Michigan and University of California at Berkeley to establish theNextProf Nexus program three years ago. The national mentoring workshop focuses on equipping senior-level Ph.D. candidates, postdoctoral researchers, and early-career scientists and researchers with the tools they need to succeed in academia. The initiative is also in place to help diversify the next generation of academic leaders.
The National Science Foundation (NSF), in partnership with the Department of Energy, has awarded a $1 million Stage 2 Civic Innovation Challenge grant to a Georgia Tech research team to pilot an On-Demand Multimodal Transit System (ODMTS) in Atlanta. The goal of the project is to make public transportation in Atlanta faster, more convenient, and more equitable for the city’s residents, especially in underserved communities.
