Reflecting on a half-century of what director Skip Van Bloem called “a Tiger spirit … with some Hobcaw seasoning,” Clemson University’s Belle W. Baruch Institute of Coastal Ecology and Forest Science celebrated its 50th anniversary last week at its headquarters.
The carbon credit market is taking shape across the globe and South Carolina forest landowners are learning how they can take advantage of this new revenue stream while helping slow climate change. A group of forest landowners met at a recent workshop at Clemson’s Belle W. Baruch Institute of Coastal Ecology and Forest Science to hear a South Carolina carbon market success story and learn what they need to do to write their own success stories.
Clemson Cooperative Extension experts are holding a workshop to help South Carolina forest landowners learn how participating in the Carbon Market can provide a new revenue stream for landowners while helping attack climate change.
Clemson University scientists have received a federal grant to evaluate the effectiveness of producing biofuels to mitigate climate change. Quantifying the net impact that growing biomass feedstock for biofuel has on local temperature and carbon sequestration can aid the development of effective land-use policies and is the key of a new research project led by Clemson University scientist Thomas O’Halloran.
Research by wildlife biologists from Clemson University and the Tom Yawkey Wildlife Center near Georgetown is shattering conventional scientific understanding about American alligator growth and reproduction.
New insights into the impact forests have on surface temperature will provide a valuable tool in efforts to mitigate climate change, according to a new research paper co-authored by Clemson University scientist Thomas O’Halloran. For the first time, scientists have created a global map measuring the cooling effect forests generate by regulating the exchange of water and energy between the Earth’s surface and the atmosphere.
A renowned researcher with more than 30 years' experience studying waterfowl habitats and populations has been named the inaugural director of Clemson University's James C. Kennedy Waterfowl and Wetlands Conservation Center. Rick Kaminski will coordinate teaching, research and outreach in waterfowl and wetlands ecology from the Kennedy Center’s location at Clemson’s Belle W. Baruch Institute for Coastal Ecology and Forest Science in Georgetown.
A little bit of rain didn’t dampen spirits as Clemson President James P. Clements visited the university’s Belle W. Baruch Institute of Coastal Ecology and Forest Science on Hobcaw Barony near Georgetown. Dr. Clements sunnily greeted more than 100 Clemson guests, scientists and students during his stay to attend a lunch, dedication and Baruch Institute tour. After […]
Clemson President James P. Clements will visit the university’s Belle W. Baruch Institute of Coastal Ecology and Forest Science in Georgetown Sept. 23 to meet the scientists and dedicate new student housing.
Public officials in Conway and Horry County know it takes brains as well as brawn to prevent the city from flooding. Ditch-digging that once was a product of strong backs, picks and shovels now involves Ph.D.s, computers and digital mapping. Leaders working with Clemson University's Belle W. Baruch Institute of Coastal Ecology and Forest Science; Coastal Carolina University; and federal, state, local and volunteer groups, have restored two sections of the city's main drain for storm water.
A forestry scientist whose research focuses on coastal forest, wetland and managed ecosystems has joined Clemson University as the director of the Belle W. Baruch Institute of Coastal Ecology and Forest Science.
