Transportation Research Center at UVM - Brown Bag Discussions - 2013 Summer Schedule

posted at 10:51 am Tue May 14th, 2013 by (WherezIt_Staff)

It's as easy as one, two, three:
  1. Bring a lunch & grab a seat;
  2. Listen to a 10-15 min introduction by the discussion leaders; and
  3. Participate in a conversation about critical issues in transportation.
Please join us for lively conversation at one (or all!) of our Brown Bag discussions. All discussions are on Fridays from 12:00 to 1:00 in Decision Theater, Farrell Hall. The building is accessible and directions can be found here.  Remote access capabilities will also be provided.  Directions on how to link to the presentations or view recordings of previous presentations can be found on the Brown Bag Website.

We hope to see you this summer!

Upcoming Topics
  • May 17 - Livable Communities and Transportation
    Hosted by: Glenn McRae of the Transportation Research Center
    Discussion Leader:  Jennifer Wallace-Brodeur, AARP, Senior Advisor States, Education and Outreach

AARP has been advancing the concept of Livable Communities on many fronts, and in Vermont this has included the Vermont Complete Streets initiative that lead to state legislation, and the Burlington Livable Communities Project.  Jennifer lead these initiatives at the state level and recently was promoted to advance this agenda nationally for AARP from her Burlington office.  She will talk about some of the initiatives and the challenges ahead, as well as opportunities for connecting with this work.   


  • May 31st - Assessing the Effects of Unpaved Roads on Lake Champlain Water Quality
    Hosted By: Amanda Hanaway-Corrente of the Transportation Research Center
    Discussion leader: Dr. Beverley Wemple, Associate Professor in the Department of Geography at UVM  

Dr. Wemple's research focuses on the dynamics of hydrologic and geomorphic processes in upland, forested watersheds. Her work examines the influence of land use practices on geophysical processes with a particular interest in using basic theoretical tools and simulation modeling, in conjunction with empirical field studies, to understand how management of the mountain landscape alters the processes of runoff generation and sediment production in steep, headwater catchments.  For the TRC Brown Bag Seminar Series, Dr. Wemple will discuss her recently completed project for the Lake Champlain basin program to assess pollutant production from unpaved roads in the basin.   



The full schedule of summer Transportation Brown Bags will be posted shortly.  Our Brown Bags webpage will be kept up-to-date with presentation information and links.  Discussion topics and leaders are subject to change without notice.

Metered parking, bike parking and CCTA bus service are all available.
