The COVID-19 pandemic has caused more than 48 million cases and 800,000 deaths in the United States. Mississippi (MS) is one of the hardest-hit states with a high incidence and mortality compared to the US national average. This paper explores the relationship of MS county-level COVID19-related incidence and mortality (through December 2, 2021) wit...

Snow cover helps regulate the temperature of the Earth's surface. Snowmelt recharges groundwater, provides run-off for rivers and creeks, and acts as a major source of local water for many communities around the world. Since 2000, there has been a significant decrease in the snow-covered area in the Northern Hemisphere. Climate change is the major...

The City of Atlanta has seen phenomenal urban expansion, racial re-composition, and migration patterns over decades. In this paper, we try to answer overarching question: Has the economic development and urban sprawl in Atlanta been accompanied by racially diverse neighborhoods? Or has the economic development in Atlanta led to a racially integrate...

These results of this study suggest that improvements in the classroom environment do seem to be related to fidelity of implementation. Teachers who see improvements in their classroom environments also seem to display high fidelity. However, the relationship between fidelity and the language/literacy environment was not significant. This may be du...

Despite increases in global temperature, studies have observed a decrease in evaporation in the Northern Hemisphere. To examine whether a decrease in pan evaporation also indicates decreased evapotranspiration (ET), ET rates were modelled in a geographic information system by integrating climatic data and water-balance data from 1997 to 2007. Avera...

Protected Areas, as a conservation strategy, often constrain livelihood outcomes of groups that are less powerful, politically marginalized, and poor. At the same time, the poor often depend on a market economy that is volatile. Working on coffee plantations and the collection of non-timber forest products (NTFPs) are the two major livelihood optio...
Article
Mass balance changes of glaciers are important indicators of climate change. There are only 30 'reference' glaciers in the world that have continuous mass balance data with world glacier monitoring service since 1976. Especially, Himalayan glaciers are conspicuously absent from global mass balance records. This shows the urgent need for mass balanc...

Mississippi Building Blocks (MBB) is an ambitious multifaceted program, which NSPARC's team recently concluded its seventh year of working with pre-kindergarten programs across Mississippi. The program was founded in 2008 with the sponsorship of a number of Mississippi businesses and foundations, and the recognition that the high poverty rate of Mississippi families leaves a large percentage of young children in the state unprepared for kindergarten at age 5. Since its inception, MBB’s primary goal has been to improve early care and education for young children in child care centers across the state of Mississippi by demonstrating the effectiveness of an intervention for teachers of preschool-aged children.
