We’re seeding cross-college research projects that draw on the vast expertise of our faculty, students, and staff in energy, climate, and sustainability research and leveraging the on-going work of existing research centers across Georgia Tech, as well partnerships that extend across Atlanta and beyond.
Smart Sea Level Sensors
Together with the City of Savannah and Chatham Emergency Management Agency officials, we’re installing a network of internet-enabled sea level sensors across Chatham County. The real-time data on coastal flooding will be used for emergency planning and response.Learn more
Together with Spelman College Environmental and Health Sciences Program, the West Atlanta Watershed Alliance, the Partnership for Southern Equity, Georgia Tech partners, and the City of Atlanta we’re working with community scientists to track temperature with mobile sensors. We’re using these data to map urban heat islands in Atlanta, especially as they relate to the impacts of climate change on frontline communities, and the role of urban greenspace, city planning, and energy burden in shaping environmental justice priorities.Learn more
Together with partners from Georgia Tech, Emory, the University of Georgia, and the Ray C. Anderson Foundation, we’re creating a roadmap to lead Georgia to carbon neutrality with 20 climate solutions tailor-made for Georgia.Learn more
