Tuesday, September 10th, 2013 • 2:34 pm

The Community Education office at Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington presents Dr. Titus Man (Teetus Mon) from Romania. Dr. Man is an Assistant Professor – Applied GIS and Remote Sensing Department of Regional Geography at “Babeș-Bolyai” University, Faculty of Geography and is the Fulbright Scholar in residence at EWC. He will comment about his experience and research in the area of drought conditions on agriculture and address questions from those attending.

Drought is a phenomenon more and more present in our lives. Every year, the increasing of food demands put pressure on the agricultural production. All the nations around the Globe are heavily affected by the last year’s droughts. Therefore, there is an increasing need to investigate sustainable strategies in order to minimize economic losses suffered by farmers and to adapt to drought conditions.

Despite the fact that more people now acknowledge that climate change represents a significant threat to human well-being many questions are still unanswered: How long is this going to last? Is this a normal event in the general climatic variability or are we facing a climatic change? Which factors are responsible for droughts? What’s the impact in agriculture?

Dr. Man is one of approximately 800 outstanding foreign faculty and professionals who will teach and/or research in the United States through the Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program in 2013-2014.

This talk and refreshment reception is free and open to the public and will be held on September 19 at 7 pm in Tebbet Room 131. For more information, contact the EWC Community Education office at 307.532.8213 or 307.532.8323 or stop by to visit them at 3200 West C Street in Torrington.
