EPA Tribal Science Webinar Series
The Tribal Science Webinar Series provides a forum for discussion of the complex environmental issues facing many tribal and indigenous communities, and features a wide variety of expert guest speakers from government, academic institutions and other organizations. This month’s webinar focuses on air pollution monitoring research collaborations with Native American and Hawaiian Native partners. Presenters will discuss the development and nature of their partnerships, current research activities, and strategies for community engagement.
EPA Science to Achieve Results (STAR) Webinar Series: Emissions Research to Improve Decision-making
New research and improved measurement tools can help identify and characterize emissions that were previously uncertain. These presentations will cover a few novel emissions sources, including how the emissions of large and small particles compare, how fuel and vehicle speed affects emissions from ships, and how to measure a recently identified kind of organic emissions from vehicles and aircraft.
