Title:  Cleaning and Monitoring Earth

Abstract: Nanotechnology—the study and application of extremely small things—is one of the new frontiers of discovery in science and engineering. This lecture will describe the potential global impact of newly created nanotechnology that cleans 100 per cent of contaminants from wastewater, as well as three new imaging methods being developed at UVic to monitor Earth’s atmosphere, ocean and landmass. All of these technologies have exciting commercialization possibilities!
