Lunar Eclipse 2019: How to watch the “super blood wolf moon” – overnight January 20-21, 2019

Skywatchers across the continental U.S. will be treated to a total lunar eclipse overnight on Jan. 20-21, when Earth’s shadow sweeps over the lunar surface to give it a reddish tinge and turn it into what some call a “blood moon.”

This will be the first lunar eclipse of 2019 and the last total lunar eclipse until 2021. It coincides with the year’s first full moon — a “wolf moon” in the folklore tradition because it occurs at a time of year when wolves howl outside villages — and comes when the moon is slightly bigger and brighter because it’s at the closest point to Earth in its elliptical orbit.

Since it’s a so-called supermoon that’s being shadowed, some media outlets have dubbed this eclipse a “super blood wolf moon.”

Call for Abstracts – A&WMA Freight & Environment: Ports of Entry – October 23-24, 2019 in Newark, NJ

The Air & Waste Management Association is proud to announce a new specialty conference on Freight & Environment: Ports of Entry that will be held on October 23-24, 2019 at the Penn Station Hilton Hotel in Newark, New Jersey.  This conference will explore many solutions to reduce the environmental impacts of all freight transportation, focusing on ports of entry.

The technical program will include panel discussions of experts in the field, forward looking presentations on reducing impacts on the environment, and student participation. The conference will bring together an international community of scientists, regulators, practitioners and students to share ways to make freight more sustainable.

Call for abstracts open!  Deadline is March 8, 2018. Share your work and present at this inaugural conference.

The planning committee is seeking abstracts for platform presentations, panel sessions, and student posters on environmental issues and solutions for all types of ports—marine, rail, air cargo, and truck. Suggested topics include air quality, climate change, sustainability and energy, transportation planning and land use, and noise impacts and reduction.

A&WMA Webinar – Air Sensors: New Opportunities, New Challenges and Impacts on Sources and Regulators – Tuesday, December 11, 2018 from 1:00 to 2:30 pm ET

There are many potential applications for new smaller, portable, and less expensive air sensors, such as community engagement, research, and management.  This webinar will provide an in-depth understanding of the state-of-the-art for air sensors, their uses, and the quality of measurement techniques and data for various types of air pollutants.  Manufacturers, testers and users of next generation air sensors, as well as policymakers, will benefit from the knowledge of our expert panel of speakers.  Presenters also will cover opportunities and concerns for regulators and regulated entities.
