The 151,000-square-foot ENR2 building, with its slot canyon design, nearly 300 artistic inlays and Sonoran Desert-inspired décor, is a physical and symbolic representation of the UA's commitment to promote interdisciplinary research among those who focus on earth science, environmental programs and natural resources.
School districts are making it official, filing a lawsuit against the state.
Craig goes to Biosphere 2--the largest closed system ever created--and learns about the science of recreating the Earth's ecosystems. How do we build a space colony? Can we re-create nature? Was Biosphere 2 a failure?

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT 07: Drought, Arizona and Utah Prolonged drought coupled with water withdrawals have caused a dramatic drop in Lake Powell's water level. These images show the northern part of the lake, which is actually a deep, narrow, meandering reservoir that extends from Arizona upstream into southern Utah. The 1999 image shows water levels near full capacity. By May 2014, the lake had dropped to 42 percent of capacity. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Source: http://climate.nasa.gov/state_of_flux#Lakepowell_930x544.jpg Music: Stellardrone - Galaxies (CC BY) ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Environmental change is defined as a change or disturbance of the environment caused by human influences or n...
During the past century, Arizona was a Mecca of sorts for individuals seeking the health benefits of a warm, dry climate. The belief that the Arizona environment could offer an improved quality of life for those suffering from tuberculosis, asthma and other disorders drew many to the Sunbelt for medical care. As Arizona celebrates its 100th anniversary of statehood, a new direction in health care is developing at the University of Arizona's Arizona Health Sciences Center. Lyle Bootman, PhD, ScD, UA senior vice president for health sciences, envisions the state once again becoming a health destination for the nation, with the UA and AHSC playing significant roles in this transformation.
Gene Giacomelli, director of the University of Arizona Controlled Environment Agriculture Center (CEAC), was excited to share the same challenges in growing crops as the fictitious Mr. Watney experienced while stranded on Mars, as depicted in the book and recently released movie, "Martian". The NASA funded research has a mission to develop systems for growing plant food in harsh environments such as distant planets like Mars. CEAC created a prototype environment, the Lunar Greenhouse, which provides the perfect combination of heat, light and humidity so plants will grow. Red and blue led grow lights, a combination that produces an intense magenta cast and lack any green component optimize both energy and plant growth, key to plant survival where resources are scarce. The Lunar Greenho...

Hydroponic growers and scientists at Kubota Labs at University of Arizona's Controlled Environment Agriculture Center are finding ways to make strawberries an Arizona crop for winter visitors, summer dwellers, and for export, as strawberries were 50 years ago, when deep red and delicious strawberries grew abundantly in Arizona's warm and fertile irrigated fields, from the Salt River farms on south to the shaded valleys near the border. That stopped. But soon, again, in pesticide-free, raised hydroponic greenhouse beds.
