Green Science Projects - Overview Mic Jackson and Charlie Peck March, 2004

The principle goals of our "green science" project are:

In order to accomplish those goals we plan to implement the following initiatives in the near term:

Physical site overview

Dennis Hall photos is home to Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science, and Geology. It also houses our weather monitoring gear and other hardware interfacing projects. The entrance and lobby of Dennis serve as the primary portal to the natural science complex (Dennis, Noyes, and Stanley halls) from the central part of campus. The Admissions Office tours typically walk through this lobby.

In the entrance hall lobby we plan to create the Green Zone. Here we will have a variety of displays and interactive learning stations highlighting Green Science projects around campus. The multi-panel data visualization system will be available for people to examine energy consumption/production, weather, and related data.

The roof of Dennis Hall is where we plan to situate the wind and solar based electrical generation equipment. The roof is currently home to our weather station, campus camera, and GPS receiver. Ray Hively, professor of Physics, has a solar telescope installed on the roof of Dennis and plans to install a radio telescope there in the future.
