While major advances have been made in seismic design, there still exists a large disconnect between the performance level that buildings are designed to achieve and the performance level required for community resiliency. Although current building codes limit fatalities in new construction, they do little to limit socioeconomic losses.

Air Around Us: Science, Technology, and Health: CEE Spring Distinguished Lecture

Lecture: Engineering and Project Management: Environmental Engineering: GeoEngineering: Structural Engineering, Mechanics and Materials: Transportation Engineering: Civil Systems: Civil and Environmental Engineering: Energy, Civil Infrastructure and Climate | March 6 | 5-6 p.m. | Sutardja Dai Hall, Banatao Auditorium

 William Nazaroff, Daniel Tellep Distinguished Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering Dept., UC Berkeley

 Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE)

This lecture features three vignettes that illustrate recent advances in knowledge about the air we breathe. The advanced analytical capability combined with deep domain knowledge is yielding surprising new insights about the composition of the air around us.
