    Green Infrastructure Training Program Graduation
    10:00 am - 12:00 pm. St. Lucy's Auditorium, Gifford Street, Syracuse. Eight students from the Near Westside Community will be graduating from the Green Infrastructure Training program called "GreenTrain Landscaping and Urban Ecology Program". These trainees have completed a 10-week training program that covered topics of sustainable landscaping, stormwater management, green infrastructure design, build and maintenance, and an industry internship. The purpose of the Green Infrastructure Initiative is to support the emergence of green infrastructure throughout Syracuse and Central New York by equipping various audiences with the knowledge and skills necessary for green infrastructure design, implementation, monitoring, and maintenance; and by educating them on local funding opportunities and current barriers to widespread acceptance of green infrastructure. Specifically, the Green Train Landscaping and Urban Ecology (GLUE) workforce training program seeks to directly prepare a cohort of Syracuse citizens with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for employment in the emerging field of green infrastructure. We are partnering with regional organizations to train un/underemployed local residents in an emerging "green" industry sector while also supporting innovative stormwater management in the Syracuse area. The training includes the development and implementation of various green infrastructure projects such as rain gardens, permeable pavers, and urban forests. These projects provide hands-on experience and skill development, while also improving and beautifying the community's infrastructure. The projects will be monitored by engineering faculty and students to investigate the effectiveness of using these practices as a practical method for stormwater management. This program is in partnership with the Northside Urban Partnership, the Near West Side Initiative, with funding from the US Forest Service and CNY Works.

    Phytoremediation Seminar
    12:30 pm - 1:50 pm. 12 Illick Hall. Phytoremediation in Cold, Remote Sites: An Overview of Laboratory and Field Research Dr. Reynolds will present work on remediating contaminated soils in cold regions such as Alaska and Korea. His work includes long-term examination of contaminated sites. Remediating contaminated soils in cold remote regions is difficult due to location, weather, and limited alternatives. Dr. Reynolds has conducted remediation tests in Alaska and Korea and monitored total petroleum hydrocarbons and specific fractions. Results indicate a significant plant and plant-nutrient impact. The Alaskan site was left without additional treatment or maintenance for 15 years. A subsequent study is investigating the long-term changes in petroleum concentrations, microbial function, and plant colonization. Preliminary analyses indicate a relationship between native plant succession and the planting and fertilization treatments originally applied. These long-term studies will provide insight into the mechanisms, efficacy, and plant succession for phyto- and rhizoremediation.

    Commercial SPARE PV Installation Training
    8:30 am - 6:00 pm. Syracuse, NY. In this class, participants will cover the issues associated with larger commercial PV installations which typically have three-phase electrical systems. Weight and wind loading play a major part in the design of large commercial installations, as most commercial buildings have expansive, flat roofs. The class will also look at issues for large, ground-mounted systems and review interconnection issues such as the necessary size of the local service, when a new transformer would be needed, when an entire substation would be needed and when the local utility might need the plant to provide reactive power (VAR support). The economics of these larger systems will also be reviewed.

    12:00 am - 12:00 am. Farmingdale State College, 2350 Broad Hollow Road, Farmingdale, NY 11735 . There are many drivers and increasing expectations for government, private, non-profit and educational organizations to meet sustainability obligations. These expectations are oftentimes difficult to meet, even when institutions and individuals are genuinely committed to doing so. This program is designed for individuals who are responsible for thinking strategically and technically about their institution's sustainability agendas. You will learn to understand what aspects of your current institutional plans and operating procedures are critical to future success and how to close the gap between your best intentions and what you are actually able to accomplish. Through this workshop, you will work with a team of experienced practitioners and instructors who will provide you with: •Real-world examples of the benefits and costs associated with the adaption and use of renewable technologies and sustainable practices. •Authoritative and reliable perspective, recommendations, information and resources that will inform your sustainability-related decision-making, practice and policy. | Contact: Katherina Bendz Searing, 315-470-6888

    SUNY Conversation in the Disciplines: Resiliency of the Great Lakes to Climate & Storms
    12:00 pm - 12:00 pm. Gatway Center, SUNY-ESF. New York's great lakes ecosystems are entering a period of change. Stressors range from natural events due to changes in the global climate, changing precipitation patterns, and variations in ice cover, to human-moderated events such as changes in Lake level. Understanding how the ecosystem services provided by Lake Ontario are affected by such changes is a key challenge for climate change scientists, lake ecologists, land use planners and regulatory agencies alike. The purpose of this conference is to understand how New York's Great lakes ecosystem (terrestrial, littoral and pelagic) will respond to storm and climate events. This is truly an interdisciplinary question, requiring scholarly contributions in meteorology, lake ecology, physical limnology, shoreline engineering processes and coastal design and planning of the human environment. This topic is especially apropos at this time given the proposed IJC changes in lake level management and the continuing academic discussions on the impact of climate change on large lake ecosystems. However we feel this topic will also draw scientists from SUNY campuses not directly connected with Great Lakes but with interests in marine coastal services issues as many of the topics are applicable to terrestrial, marine and freshwater systems. | Contact: Katherina Bendz Searing, 315-470-6888

Presenter: Dr. Allan Guymon, University of Iowa Design of Experiments (DOE) is a powerful technique that allows the maximum amount of information to be obtained by performing the minimum number of experiments. For those in production, product design, or quality control, knowledge of DOE can dramatically enhance effectiveness in solving problems and optimizing systems. Most experiments not based on DOE concepts, are two-dimensional, i.e. one variable is changed while a response is measured. DOE, on the other hand, varies all of the important variables simultaneously and systematically, thereby examining the response(s) in many dimensions. The webinar will introduce the topic of DOE with particular focus on its value for those in the radiation curing industry.

    Commercial SPARE PV Training
    8:30 am - 5:30 pm. Gateway Center, Room 240. In this class, participants will cover the issues associated with larger commercial PV installations which typically have three-phase electrical systems. Weight and wind loading play a major part in the design of large commercial installations, as most commercial buildings have expansive, flat roofs. The class will also look at issues for large, ground-mounted systems and review interconnection issues such as the necessary size of the local service, when a new transformer would be needed, when an entire substation would be needed and when the local utility might need the plant to provide reactive power (VAR support). The economics of these larger systems will also be reviewed. NABCEP requires that a "minimum of 40 of the 58 prescribed hours for certification must cover advanced solar PV installation and design principles and practices addressed in the NABCEP PV Installer Job Task Analysis". This class meets section 3.5.C.III as it is taught by an ISPQ certified instructor. | Contact: Sean Nicholson, 315-470-4882
