Aside from Dr. Navarrete, Dr. Severino G. Salmo III received the 2016 NAST Award for Outstanding Scientific Paper for the study "An individual-based model of long-term forest growth and carbon sequestration in planted mangroves under salinity and inundation stresses," co-authored with Dr. Drandreb Earl O. Juanico from the Technological Institute of the Philippines. Said paper was published in the International Journal of Philippine Science and Technology.
The awarding ceremony was held last July 14, 2016.
Dr. Salmo has received an NAST award two years in a row as he was a recipient of the NAST Environmental Science Award in 2015. Dr. Charlotte Kendra Z. Gotangco, Assistant Professor in the ES Department, was also a recepient of an NAST award in 2015 as she was declared the second prize winner for the 2015 NAST Talent Search for Young Scientist.
The Department of Environmental Science is blessed to have its own faculty members win awards from NAST.
Beyond the Four Walls of the Classroom
Courses in both the BS Environmental Science Program, Master’s in Environmental Management and M.S. Environmental Science all have field components as part of the syllabus in order to ensure that students not only have a better understanding environmental principles but they can also relate what they have learned to the current situation in the Philippines.
Learning from Professionals
As such, last May 17, 2016, students taking the Advanced Health and Safety Class, visited Baliwag Water District (BWD)to learn how local water utility authorities consider and apply environmental health and safety practices. The class was given a lecture by BWD on their operations in providing potable water and in treating sewage. The class also got a chance to see the facilities of BWD and to interact with the operators, engineers and administrators of BWD.
