Three experts from across campus will each discuss their work related to water and respond to questions from attendees during the #FunkPanel2023.  Their work includes research to improve and maintain water quality by reducing runoff from agricultural systems, long-term monitoring of sediment load and nutrients in Illinois waterways, and research on water decision-support systems within the dynamics of coupled human-natural systems.  This hybrid panel presentation will be an opportunity for people to come together with the Funk ACES Library to learn about and discuss water initiatives and research led by members of our campus community.

We invite you to attend the panel in-person for an opportunity to talk with the panelists and other attendees during the reception from 3:30-4:00 p.m.  Also for in-person attendees, we will have a drawing of two water-related books donated by the University of Illinois Press.  We are providing a Zoom option for people to attend the panel virtually.
