Dr. Sheila Olmstead "Fracking and Surface Water Quality: Impacts and Policy Implications"

Sat, 05/31/2014 - 4:07pm
Thursday, May 29, 2014 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Due to advances in hydraulic
fracturing, horizontal drilling, and
seismic imaging, the development
of energy resources from lowpermeability
deep shale formations
has increased dramatically in the
United States, and development
may be poised to take off elsewhere
around the globe. Potential impacts
on water resources are a primary
focus of public opposition, yet
empirical evidence of actual impacts
is just beginning to emerge. How
generalizable are these results?
What are the policy implications?
These questions and others will be
addressed.

Frontiers in Applied Economics Semiar Series: Sheila Olmstead "Damming the Commons: An Empirical Analysis of International Cooperation and Conflict in Dam Placement"

Sat, 05/31/2014 - 4:07pm
Friday, May 30, 2014 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
This paper examines whether countries consider the welfare of other nations when they make water development decisions. We estimate econometric models of the location of major dams around the world as a function of the degree of international sharing of rivers. We find evidence that dams are more prevalent in areas of river basins upstream of foreign countries, supporting the view that countries free ride in deciding the placement of dams. In preliminary analyses, we do not find evidence that international water management institutions reduce the extent of free-riding.

Third time's the charm: The 2014 U.S. National Climate Assessment Report

Sat, 05/31/2014 - 4:07pm
Thursday, May 22, 2014 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

In 1990, Congress passed the U.S. Global Change Research Act which among other things calls for an assessment report every four years. On May 6, the President's Administration released the third National Climate Assessment. This report is by far the most comprehensive, with 30 chapters covering climate change impacts on various regions and sectors, as well as adaptation and mitigation.  The report emphasizes that climate change is already noticeable and affecting Americans in a variety of ways, and presents fascinating depth and breadth of evidence.  Dr. Mote co-authored the report’s Northwest chapter and served on the report's advisory committee.  In this seminar, he will give an overview of the assessment and its findings.

The seminar can be viewed in person (Kidder 202) or online at http://live.oregonstate.edu  .

Following the seminar, a recording
will be posted at: http://water.oregonstate.edu/ww2100/webinars 

Co-sponsored by the Geography program in the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences, the Oregon Climate Change Research Institute, and the Willamette Water 2100 Project

DamNation Film Screening

Sat, 05/31/2014 - 4:07pm
Thursday, May 15, 2014 6:00 PM - 8:15 PM

This powerful film odyssey across America explores the sea change in our national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers. Dam removal has moved beyond the fictional Monkey Wrench Gang to go mainstream. Where obsolete dams come down, rivers bound back to life, giving salmon and other wild fish the right of return to primeval spawning grounds, after decades without access. DamNation’s majestic cinematography and unexpected discoveries move through rivers and landscapes altered by dams, but also through a metamorphosis in values, from conquest of the natural world to knowing ourselves as part of nature.

 

Screening preceded by a Brown Bag discussion with Dr. Gordon Grant from 12-1pm in Richardson Hall, Room 107
