Environmental Monitoring and Management Volume 53, Number 3, 2009
RD 53-3
Information technology plays critical roles in helping address environmental challenges. Topics for this diverse issue include the emergence of a new computing paradigm based on sensing and modeling, business management strategies and dashboards, carbon and emissions management, optimization of data center energy utilization, and applications relating to the optimization and monitoring of rivers, water pumps, and railroads. A non-topical paper describes a technique for simulating wrinkling of thin films on patterned substrates.
