Patrick M. Reed, Joseph C. Ford Professor of Engineering of the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering has been appointed as an editor for the American Geophysical Union’s Earth’s Future journal.
According to their website, Earth’s Future is a transdisciplinary, Gold Open-Access journal. Earth's Future examines the state of the planet and its inhabitants, sustainable and resilient societies, and the predictions of our common future.
“I’m excited to join the tremendously talented editorial board of Earth’s Future as an Editor. This will provide me with an opportunity to engage research communities interested in better understanding deeply uncertain changes in coupled human-Earth systems, multisector dynamics (e.g., the food-energy-water nexus), and systems-based approaches to sustainability, energy transitions, and climate change”, said Reed.
Dr. Reed's primary research interests relate to sustainable water management given conflicting demands from renewable energy systems, ecosystem services, expanding populations, and climate change.
Reed remarks, “The goal is build on the journal’s success and attract exciting work that is addressing the critical challenges we’re facing as a global community.”
