TIPS Technology Tuesday featured a presentation from Longwood Gardens on Occupancy Data. Learn about technological solutions to better understand visitor numbers, safety, and impacts.
Communities are increasingly turning to “smart” water systems to address their often-competing stormwater challenges. This begs the question “how much more effective are smart stormwater systems?”.
In response to drought conditions, urban population growth, and dwindling water supplies in Utah, Utah State University (USU) Extension implemented a study using soil moisture meters.
The effects of urban development write a profound signature on the landscape. Soils are inevitably compacted and regraded or paved over.
The stormwater runoff that carries pollutants from the land adjacent to road transportation
While green stormwater infrastructure increases in popularity, we are still learning about the role of trees in these innovative practices.
Hurricane Florence dumped as much as three feet of water on parts of Southeastern North Carolina. This occurred only 1 year after massive flooding in Houston, Texas. Epic rainfall events, while still 'epic,' may no longer be considered infrequent.
Learn about water conservation and reuse at a higher education institution and how that might be applied in a college/university garden setting or at public gardens in a variety of settings/governance structures.
A soil moisture sensor-based automated irrigation system was trialed in a commercial floriculture greenhouse to determine what benefits these types of systems may offer to herbaceous ornamental producers.
Understanding carbon footprint (CF) terminology and the science underlying its determination is important to minimizing the negative impacts of new product development and assessing positive or negative cradle-to-grave lifecycle impacts.
