GWs Luther W. Brady Art Gallery has been showcasing art on the universitys Foggy Bottom campus for 15 years. The new exhibition, Drawn From: 15 Years of Exhibitions at the Luther W.

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL AND OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH 2017 Research Seminar Series Increasing Airborne Dust and Public Health Risks in the American Southwest Under Future Climate Change Ploy Achakulwisut, MA, MSci PhD Candidate in Atmospheric Science, Harvard University Fine dust (soil-derived particulate matter < 2.5 μm in size) is a significant component of air pollution and visibility reduction in the American Southwest. This region is projected to experience severe drought conditions due to human-caused climate change.
