Gardiner Global Food Systems Lecture Next Monday, October 3rd

Submitted by Steven Graham

We would like to invite you to attend the upcoming Henry C. Gardiner Global Food Systems Lecture next Monday, October 3rd, at 7 p.m. in McCain Auditorium.

Dr. Jay Famiglietti, Hydrologist and Professor at University of California, Irvine, will present “Water, Food, and Energy: Interwoven challenges to sustainable resource management.”

As we all know, western Kansas overlays the Ogallala Aquifer, the largest fresh water aquifer in North America and one of the largest in the world. The sustainability of the aquifer will determine the future of Kansas agriculture and our state’s economy. Dr. Famiglietti, who has worked with NASA, has been monitoring the aquifer from space for years and will discuss the depletion of the Ogallala and other aquifers around the globe.

Please plan to attend and encourage co-workers, friends and family to come. The lecture is free and open to the public.

If you cannot attend, please go to the Global Food Systems lecture website, http://www.k-state.edu/globalfood/lecture-series/, and watch the lecture on October 3rd or afterwards. The lecture will be archived at that site.
