School of Earth, Society, and Environment
The Earth is a complex system in which the solid planet, the oceans, the atmosphere, and life (both human and non-human) interact in countless ways. In order to respond to the environmental challenges of our time, it is necessary to understand these interactions and interdependencies that transcend the boundaries of traditional academic disciplines. The School of Earth, Society, and Environment (SESE) brings the resources of the departments of Atmospheric Sciences, Geology, and Geography at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to study the Earth System.
Predition of compressive strength from point-load and moisture content indices of highly anisotropic, coal-bearing strata of the Illinois Basin (1983)
(2018-07-12)Recent advances in high-resolution multibeam bathymetric imaging have revealed step-like structures interpreted as cyclic steps, or sediment waves, along the bottom of deep-sea canyons and channel levees. These bed features ...
(2018-07-20)PM2.5 is the set of airborne particulate matter (also known as aerosols) with diameter 2.5 m or smaller. Ambient concentrations of these aerosols have been shown to be highly correlated with premature mortality throughout ...
(2018-07-18)A deep understanding of the impact of the natural environment on local (< 150 km) infrasound propagation is important, specifically for persistent infrastructure monitoring. Passively sensing the infrasound field provides ...
(2018-07-19)Entrainment, the process by which turbulent clouds introduce dry air from outside the cloud inward via overturning eddies at the cloud edge, can decrease the cloud buoyancy, and the water and/or ice mass it contains, ...
