EAS alumni invited to attend CUBO lecture

By: Cornell EAS

To meet the University’s goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2035, we will utilize the Ithaca campus as a living laboratory to house the Cornell University Borehole Observatory (CUBO). This borehole will allow researchers to explore deep surface rock conditions and heat output to determine if Cornell’s version of a deep geothermal system can be used to warm the campus utilizing Earth’s internal heat without the use of fossil fuels. If viable, Earth Source Heat could also become a scalable solution for renewable heating in New York as well as other cold-climate regions.

Please join us Friday, June 10 in 1120 Snee Hall at 4:30 p.m. to hear more from Dr. Terry Jordan, J. Preston Levis Professor of Engineering, Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences and Geoffrey Abers, Director and William and Katherine Snee Professor in Geological Sciences, Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences.

The lecture will be followed by a reception in the Snee Hall Atrium.
