Geology Attracts Award- Winning 
JEdl Project 

The U.S. Geological Survey 
(USGS) has transferred leadership 
of the award-winning Joint Educa- 
tion Initiative (JEdl) project to the 
Department of Geology. JEdl pro- 
vides teachers and students with 
computer access to the same sci- 
entific data used by scientists for 
studying a variety of environmen- 
tal issues. 

Last month, JEdl received the 
national FOSE CD-ROM Award, 
which was created in 1990 to recog- 
nize the most significant contribu- 
tion to facilitating access to govern- 
ment information while saving tax 
money, promoting the public good, 
and being inexpensive and user- 

As the new center for the JEdl 
project, College Park will take the 
lead in efforts to expand the initia- 
tive into a full-scale national project 
and to revolutionize American 
earth science throughout the 

"A primary goal of the JEdl 
Project is to invigorate the teaching 
of earth science studies in Ameri- 
can schools," says Robert Ridky, 
associate professor of geology and 
co-director of the JEdl program at 
the university. 

JEdl evolved from a pilot study 
conducted by the USGS and a 
group of federal science agencies, 
private industry, and the academic

community that included creation 
of CD-ROMS (compact discs — read 
only memory), the latest in power- 
ful information storage and pro- 
cessing technology, to capture vast 
amounts of scientific data for use 
by students and teachers. Each CD- 
ROM, the size of a conventional 
compact disc, can hold the equival- 
ent of a three-story stack of type- 
written pages. 

To prepare the CD-ROMS, the 
National Aeronautics and Space 
Administration and the National 
Oceanic and Atmospheric Admini- 
stration, along with the USGS, con- 
tributed data and software for the 
discs as well as extensive time and 
effort from their scientific staff. 

Through JEdl, teachers will have 
access to critical data on pressing 
earth science and environmental 
issues — the same data research sci- 
entists use to study such problems 
as sea level rise, coastal erosion, 
ozone depletion, and global warm- 
ing. Specific examples include data 
on salinity and temperatures for 
the Pacific Ocean; sonar images of 
the sea floor; seismic data from the 
1989 Loma Prieta earthquake in 
California; high-altitude photo- 
graphy and side-looking radar 
images of fire-ravaged Yellowstone 
National Park; and Voyager images 
of the planets.

Academic Programs and the Budget: 
An Interview with J. Robert Dorfman 

Vice President for Academic Af- 
fairs and Provost J. Robert 
Dorfman recently discussed with 
Outlook editor Roz Hiebert the 
effects of the university's reduced 
budget on academic programs at 
College Park. 

Q. How much effect will the $8 
million budget cut have on the 
academic program? 

A. Academic affairs has already 
absorbed a $10 million cut for the 
current fiscal year, plus an addi- 
tional set aside of $3 million that 
will be lost in the current round of 
budget cuts. This is a very serious 
cut to absorb in one year. 

Q. As part of the newest $8 mil- 
lion reduction, will Academic Af- 
fairs suffer in the area of part- 
time employees? 

A. If we were to lose any part-time 
employees, it would have a severe 
impact on the instructional pro- 
gram. The university is reducing 
only the number of part-time non- 
instructional employees at this 
time, and we are trying to protect 

the academic program in every 
way possible. 

Q. What effect will the spring 
semester 15 percent tuition sur- 
charge imposed by the Board of 
Regents have on enrollment? 

A. This is meant to be a one-time 
tuition surcharge. Of course, we 
would have preferred not to see 
this happen. But when you exam* 
ine our costs relative to those of 
our peers, you see that we still are 
less expensive than many public 
universities. We are still offering a 
high quality education at a very 
modest price, and I believe stu- 
dents recognize that fact. 

Q. Bring us up-to-date on the pro- 
cess of eliminating, consolidating 
and merging programs. 

A. We are anticipating getting 
about 10 of the 19 committee 
reports in September and October. 
Those recommendations will go to 
the appropriate dean, then come

Kirwan Will Speak to Campus Senate Sept. 16 

An address by President William E. Kirwan will be the high- 
light of the first fall semester meeting of the Campus Senate on 
Monday, Sept. 16. Held from 330 to 6:30 p,m. in Room 0126 of the 
Reckord Armory, the meeting also will feature the election of a 
new executive committee, the presentation of an organization plan 
for the College of Computer, Mathematical and Physical Sciences, 
and a report from the General Committee on Governmental Affairs 
about its summer activities. A new member reception will precede 
the meeting at 2:45 p.m. Call the Campus Senate Office at 405-5805 
for more information.

Provost Disusses Academic Issues 

continual from page I 

here, to APAC, to the president, to 
the Campus Senate and to the pres- 
ident for his final decision. So we 
are going to have a very interesting 
and somewhat hectic year in the 
senate as these issues get thrashed 

Q. Will there be decision-making 
in batches on the recommenda- 

A. The only way a batch process 
could arise is if we deliver deci- 
sions to the Campus Senate in 
batches, which may be an intelli- 
gent way to proceed. It is going to 
be up to the Senate as to how they 
want to proceed. 

Q. How about the faculty role? 

A. The deans' charge is to make 
comments and responses. The 19 
review committees are using the 
time and energies of about 125 fac- 
ulty members from across the cam- 
pus, plus students. So this is an ex- 
ercise which is really a fundamen- 
tally faculty activity, and APAC 
too, is mainly a faculty committee. 

Q, Is there a plan for more public 

A. Certainly. Campus procedures 
call for APAC to hold an open 
meeting for affected departments. 
Then in the "mother of all open 
meetings," the Campus Senate will 
debate the issue. In any case, we 
hope to have the process completed 
by the end of the academic year. 

Q. Are some departments still op- 
posed to the suggested changes? 

A. I've been impressed with the 
understanding of the situation 
across the campus. We seem to be 
operating in a mode where, 
although people may disagree with 
individual decisions, the process 
and the degree of seriousness with 
which the process is being carried 
out have won a lot of respect from 
the campus community. I attribute 
this largely to the quality of the 
people involved in the committees 
and the hard work they've done 
over the summer. 

Q. What if a committee changes a 
current recommendation? 

A. I'm going to ask why. And I'm 
going to say, are your arguments 
more persuasive than the argu- 
ments APAC had developed last 
spring? And, if the case is made by 
the committee, APAC would have 
to examine the consequences. 

Q. How will you announce recom- 

A. We want to make them public 
as quickly as we can. One of the 
benefits of this process is that if s 
been very open. Although there 
have been some problems because 
of the very openness of the process, 
it would be wrong to shut it down 

Q, Is it possible that all the 
recommendations made last 
spring were not sufficient to 
handle the latest budget crunch? 

A. That issue is causing both me 
and my colleagues some concern. 
We are going to have to look very 
deeply into what else we may have 
to do if the economic situation 
worsens. Fiscal year '93 is looking 
very foreboding, and very much 
depends on whether the General 
Assembly enacts a mid-year tax 
increase in January, 1991 . 

Q. In considering mergers or pro- 
gram elimination, what is the 
worst thing that could happen? 

A. The worst thing that could hap- 
pen is that we do nothing. The best 
is that we implement the recom- 
mendations designed to maintain 
the quality of our good programs 
while downsizing some programs 
we feel are less central and less im- 
portant to the university as we 
know it today, and that as a result, 
we are able to maintain a very 
strong academic core for the uni- 
versity, one thaf s in position to 
respond to the better economic cir- 
cumstances that are going to come 
in a couple of years. 

Q, Are we losing some of our best 

A. Unfortunately, we have already 
seen the beginnings of some drain 
of faculty, primarily to schools in 
the mid-west. That's a fear we have 
recognized for some time. But part 
of the reallocation process has as 
one of its consequences that our 
faculty, particularly our most dis- 
tinguished faculty, understand that 
we are making some very difficult 
decisions to protect the quality of 
our programs and faculty. If we 
were not interested in doing this, 
we would have just made across- 
the-board cuts and be done with it. 
But we are going through this 
tremendous labor-intensive activity 
to try to preserve what's the very 
best at College Park. 

Q. Is part of the plan a cutback in 
the number of faculty? 

A. We intend to make maximum 
use of retirements, vacant lines, 
and areas that don't require an im- 
mediate filling of a line. We will 

try to gather our resources together 
so that we'll have some money and 
lines to put in areas that do need 
strengthening and which are cen- 
tral to our mission. But we do not 
plan a reduction in faculty. 

Q. What decisions on agriculture 
have been made? 

A. The chancellor has set in motion 
a process which he hopes will lead 
to some resolution of the agricul- 
ture situation in late September. 

Q, What about the question of 
UMBC-UMAB mergers? 

A. At the moment, that merger has 
just been put on the table by 
MHEC, and the Board of Regents 
has authorized study of the notion. 
We have to wait and see what is 

Q, Do we have any problem with 
our indirect costs? 

A. No. Our indirect cost rate (46 
universities generally have an in- 
direct cost rate close to twice ours. 
We also have very careful account- 
ing procedures, so as to avoid 
some of the troubles that have been 
identified elsewhere. 

Q. Finally, if you look into your 
crystal ball, what lies ahead for 
this university? 

A. I fully believe that despite the 
temporary setbacks we may be en- 
during now, in the long run we 
will maintain our excellence.

Summer Undergraduate Research Program Held 

Students from nine colleges and universities, including College 
Park, took part in the second annual Summer Undergraduate 
Research Program this summer. Sponsored by the Office of Gradu- 
ate Minority Affairs, the program provides an opportunity for 
minority students to work closely with a College Park professor in 
his or her area of expertise, to learn research skills, and to do 
advanced work in a specific field. Eighteen College Park faculty 
from a wide range of disciplines took part. The program drew 22 
minority students from schools in six states and the District of 
Columbia. Each participant received a $1,500 stipend and funds to 
cover travel expenses, housing, and tuition. 

Byrd Stadium Refurbishment Completed 

The most extensive refurbish- 
ment to Byrd Stadium since its con- 
struction in 1950 is now com- 
plete — just in time for the new 
football season. The $13.2 million 
project was funded by monies from 
donors and the State of Maryland. 

Planned next for the stadium is 
a $6.1 million Football Training 
Center that will house football of- 
fices, locker rooms, and state-of- 
the-art support facilities, such as 
strength and conditioning rooms 
and a medical training facility. 

Terp fans will find the refur- 
bished stadium replete with 
improvements. These include: 

• A refurbished concrete bowl in 
the stadium and all new permanent 

•New concession and rest room 
areas on the south side of the sta- 
dium. The stadium's first formal 
entrance, the South Gate, is part of 
the new look. 

•A 92-foot by 152 -foot Athletics 
Welcome Center that sits atop the 
south rim of the stadium. 

•A five-tiered press box within 
the Athletics Welcome Center that 
includes a second floor hospitality 
suite, 150 media seats on the third 
level, broadcasting and support 

facilities on the fourth level, and a 
photo deck at the top. On the first 
level, 400 deluxe seats will be heat- 
ed and shielded from the weather. 
While bringing the stadium up 
to modem standards of comfort 
and convenience, the new additions 
and improvements also were 
designed with an eye to tradition. 
Encased in sand-molded Calvert 
#103 brick that matches the 
Williamsburg-style brick used on 
most of College Park's 335 build- 
ings, the brick marries contempora- 
ry architecture with the campus' 
traditional Georgian look. 

Regents Approve Budget-Cutting Principles 

At its August 28 meeting, the 
UM System Board of Regents ap- 
proved a set of principles to 
address budget shortfalls as well as 
to establish guidelines for the long- 
term redeployment of resources. 
The principles are based on the 
University System's goal of 
"achieving and sustaining national 
eminence with each of the institu- 
tions fulfilling distinctive and com- 
plementary roles." 

The plan is to budget "selective- 
ly and strategically" while taking 
into account: 

■ the requirement to meet man- 
datory expenses and submit a bal- 
anced budget; 

■the continuing commitment to 
the priorities set by the Board of 
Regents systemwide plan (includ- 
ing enhancement of College Park 
and improvement of undergradu- 
ate and teacher education); and 

•the resolve to reward cost 
effectiveness, promote greater 
efficiency, and encourage sound 
management practices. 

Based on these principles and 
available revenues, the following 
considerations will guide bud- 
getary decisions: 

•administrative and instruc- 
tional costs — these will be exam- 
ined relative to peer groups, apply- 
ing greater cuts where costs are 
unjustifiably high; 

•enhancement costs — whenever 
feasible, lesser cuts will be made in 
areas slated for enhancement in the 
systemwide plan, 

'tuition increases— deep cuts in 
general funds will require shifting 
a greater share of instructional 
costs to the student. Impact on stu- 
dents will be mitigated by increas- 
ing scholarship support. 

Among the short-term cost- 
cutting measures the constituent 
institutions will employ under Sys- 
tem guidelines are: 

•restrictions on operating ex- 
penditures — institutions will 
restrict operating budgets by elimi- 
nating, limiting or deferring pur- 
chases, maintenance, travel and less 
essential activities; 

•personnel reductions — To cut 
personnel costs, limits on part-time 
hiring, delays in filling vacancies, 
limited furloughs, and layoffs in 

areas least essential to the educa- 
tional process are the methods to 
be used; 

•pooling regional administra- 
tive services — constituent institu- 
tions will seek to form regional ser- 
vice consortia to pool administra- 
tive resources and to meet certain 
cost-saving targets. 

Over the long-term, funds will 
be allocated based on a systemwide 
strategic planning effort integrated 
with the budget process and 
accountability program. Among the 
factors the System will consider in 
deploying and redeploying resour- 
ces are: 

* enrollment projections and 
patterns — the System expects to 
cap enrollment systemwide and to 
encourage shifts in undergraduate 
populations toward campuses with 
moderate instructional costs as well 
as to the community colleges; 

•program duplication and in- 
stitutional collaboration — a goal 
will be to eliminate unproductive 
or undesirable duplication of aca- 
demic programs within the System 
while increasing collaboration 
among constituent institutions; 

* limits on new graduate and 
off-campus programs — in the 
absence of additional revenues, 
new master's and doctoral pro- 
grams will be initiated only when 
savings equal to the cost of the 
new program are achieved else- 
where. The System will open new 
off-campus sites as it can pay for 
them from savings elsewhere; 

•paperwork reduction — a con- 

certed program will be launched to 
decrease bureaucratic requirements 
while still ensuring accountability; 

• System consolidation — The 
System will begin groundwork for 
fewer, more efficient institutions; 
fewer, more focused academic 
offerings; fewer, more responsive 
research and service programs. 

Among the long-term redeploy- 
ment measures and issues the con- 
stituent institutions will pursue arc: 

•strategic planning and rede- 
ployment — each institution will 
establish strong strategic planning 
and cost analysis programs in con- 
cert with similar efforts at the Sys- 
tem level. They will establish prior- 
ities and use these as the basis for 
redeploying resources from less 
essential areas to areas of strength 
central to the institutional mission. 

• academic productivity — insti- 
tutions will increase productivity of 
their academic programs, based on 
a thorough review of outputs and 
quality in relation to factors such as 
teaching loads, research, and ser- 
vice activities, etc.; 

• auxiliary enterprises — Particu- 
lar attention will be paid to costs 
associated with self-support enter- 
prises. Student fees in support of 
lower priority activities might be 
reduced to mitigate the impact of 
tuition increases; 

• personnel costs — institutions 
will review and reduce personnel 
costs through such measures as 
new technologies, contracts for ser- 
vice, and early retirement pro- 
grams, as feasible.

Study Examines 
Rights Education 

A Filipino experiment in human 
rights education has relevance for 
other emerging democracies, 
according to Richard P. Claude, 
professor of government and 

Claude is one of the nation's 
leading authorities in the area of 
human rights and the philosophical 
and moral problems they raise. 

During the 1990-91 academic 
year, he was Visiting Fulbright 
Research Professor at the Institute 
of Human Rights at the Law Center 
of the University of the Philippines, 
Diiiman, Quezon City. 

He has written a study assessing 
a four-year-old Filipino program of 
human rights education and has 
drawn some lessons from its 
strengths and weaknesses that he 
believes can be applied to other 
emerging democracies. 

The Philippines' case, he says, 
takes on global significance as it 
becomes clear that human rights 
education is an instrument showing 
promise at the national level of 
promoting good citizenship and 
normalizing civil-military relations 
and at the international level for 
achieving the goal of the United 
Nations Charter to build a world 
order of peaceful states in the inter- 
national community. 

"The Philippines is in turmoil, 
but it is the turmoil of life, not 
death, of the movement of people 
in search of a more human and 
humane way of developing their 
society and political community 
earmarked by justice, fairness and 
freedom," Claude writes. 

While human rights education 
has been undertaken in several 
countries, there are no published 
comprehensive national case stud- 
ies of its implementation in policy, 
legal and political terms. It was this 
gap in scholarly literature that 
prompted his study. 

The development and imple- 
mentation of a human rights edu- 
cation program flow through 
social, bureaucratic and political 
channels which remain operative 
so long as they are unimpeded and 

Filipino Human 

open, Claude says. The Philippine 
case study is helpful in identifying 
some critical choke points among 
these channels for change. 

In his study, Claude contrasts 
what he calls "a virtuous neophyte 
policy to 'transform social values' 
with menace from all sides includ- 
ing several coup d'etat attempts, 
rogue bombings conducted by dis- 
affected soldiers, natural disasters, 
economic hardship and social and 
cultural crisis." 

Claude draws six conclusions 
from the Philippine experience that 
he believes have relevance to other 
emerging democracies. 

1. International government 
organizations are essential sources 
of technical assistance in establish- 
ing a national human rights educa- 
tion program, especially in the 
start-up phase. 

2. International non-governmen- 
tal organizations engaged in moni- 
toring rights violations should 
report, as well, on education. 

3. Emerging democracies can 
benefit by adopting constitutional 
requirements for the teaching of 
human rights. 

4. Informal education directed at 
public opinion is important in a 
country with an authoritarian past 
so as to promote the acceptance of 

Richard P. Clauds 

human rights education. 

5. Implementation of nationwide 
human rights education requires 
multi-directional efforts with atten- 
tion to 'bottom-up" processes of 
fostering grassroots participation. 

6. For human rights education to 
succeed, the participation of human 
rights non-governmental organiza- 
tions is critical at every stage of the 
implementation process. 

Claude's study, "Human Rights 
Education in the Philippines," is 
scheduled for publication in Human 
Rights Quarterly (Johns Hopkins 
Press) in November, and will be 
distributed in the Philippines in 
book format (Kalikasan Press).

Nacht Co-Authors Study on Internationalizing 
Higher Education 

Michael Nacht, dean of the 
School of Public Affairs, is co- 
author along with Duke University 
economics professor Craufurd D. 
Goodwin, of the recently published 
study, Missing the Boat: The Failure 
to Internationalize American Higher 

The book analyzes the interna- 
tional experience of American col- 
lege and university faculty and is 
based on extensive interviews with 
some 700 individuals at 37 cam- 
puses in four regions around the 

It examines the type of faculty 

who go abroad and their reasons 
for doing so, the incentives and 
disincentives for faculty travel 
overseas, attitudes on U.S. cam- 
puses toward such travel and activ- 
ities, special obstacles and risks 
faced by those faculty who under- 
take international experiences, and 
the effects of these experiences 
among faculty on the international- 
ization of campuses in this country. 

In previous studies, the co- 
authors have explored such topics 
as the policy issues associated with 
foreign students in American col- 
leges and universities (.Absence of 

Decision), the attitudes of students 
from developing countries who 
have studied in the United States 
(Fondness and Frustration), and the 
programs and techniques that have 
been developed to maintain the 
skills and knowledge base of third- 
world professionals who had stud- 
ied in the United States (Decline and 
Renewal). A fourth study, Abroad 
and Beyond: Patterns in American 
Overseas Education, examines why 
American students go abroad and

University officials signed a 
five-year lease agreement in June 
with the trustees of Kiplin Hall, a 
17th-century country estate in 
North Yorkshire in England. The 
agreement will give the university

for a variety of special academic 

Under the agreement, the uni- 
versity will use Crewe Cottage, the 
former coachman's house, for 
lodging on a year-round basis and 
will have access to the main build-

programs. The main building is

During parts of each year the 
spaces will be sublet to other uni- 
versities to help cover the costs of 
the program, according to David 

Fogle, associate professor of archi- 
tecture and member of the commit- 
tee overseeing use of Kiplin Hall. 

Kiplin Hall holds a special place 
in Maryland history. The estate 
was built by George Calvert, the 
first Lord Baltimore and 17th cen- 
tury founder of the colony that 
would become the State of Mary- 
land. A later Calvert, Charles 
Benedict, great-grandson of the last 
Calvert owner of Kiplin, was the 
leader of a group of planters, who, 
in 1856, secured a charter for the 
creation of the Maryland Agricul- 
tural College, an institution that 
has evolved into the modern Uni- 
versity of Maryland at College 

In addition to the historical link, 
the site provides an ideal location 
for the study of architectural his- 
tory, historic preservation and the 
study of British art and culture, 
Fogle says. Nearby landmarks 
include the Roman-era Hadrian's 
Wall, medieval castles, historic 
country estates and centuries-old

Shakespeare on Rollerblades — Forsooth, What Next? 

Last year University Theatre 
sent the Bard west in a rollicking 
cowboy version of The Taming of the 
Shrew. This year from Nov. 14-23, 
College Park audiences will be 
treated to a production of Shake- 
speare's A Midsummer Night's 
Dream that is so trendy all the ro- 
mantic fantasy's faeries will enter 
and exit on rollerblades. 

And that is only one of many 
fresh and entertaining surprises in 
University Theatre's new season. 

Between Oct. 10-19, Bring Back 
Broadway will showcase talented 
young performers in contemporary 
arrangements of favorite songs 
from the great musicals of Broad- 

From Feb. 20-29 a production of 
August Wilson's Ma Rainey's Black 

Bottom will trace the career of leg- 
endary blues singer Ma Rainey and 
examine the inevitable hatred and 
destruction that racism breeds. 

And between April 23-May 2, 
Noises Off, a fast-paced farce about 
the back-stage life of a group of 
British actors, will bring a hilarious 
mix of slamming doors and split- 
second timing to Tawes Theatre. 

Subscriptions for the 1991-92 
season are now available. All four 
plays will be presented in Tawes 
Theatre, with audio description 
available during Sunday matinees 
and an infrared listening system 
available at all performances.

Stamp Union Gallery to Feature Chesapeake Bay Art 

The Stamp Student Union Par- 
ents' Association Gallery opens this 
fall with "Honoring the Chesa- 
peake: Art, Science and Ecology," 
an exhibit featuring lithograph 
drawings by Neil Harpe. 

The drawings illustrate the new 
book, Working the Chesapeake: Water- 
men on the Bay, written by Mark E. 
Jacoby and just published by the 
Maryland Sea Grant Program. 

The Parents' Association Gallery 
exhibit will run through Oct. 2. 

Harpe is a well-known Chesa- 
peake Bay artist who has a special 
interest in workboats and water- 
men. He has made countless trips 

up and down the bay to study and 
document the working fleet, some 
of which stands at the edge of 

To learn firsthand about the 
lives of the Chesapeake water- 
men — through their own words 
and aboard their own boats — 
author Jacoby went out with them 
in all seasons and in all weather. 
He followed Wadey Murphy in his 
pursuit of crabs, Ben Waters in his 
hunt for oysters. He joined fisher- 
men as they tended their pound 
nets, fyke nets, and eel pots. 

Although his initial purpose was 
to detail commercial fishing meth- 

ods in the Chesapeake Bay, 
Jacoby's book ultimately provides 
much more: the look of the water 
at dawn in a rising northeast wind, 
the sound of a waterman's voice 
cast in accents from the nation's 
Colonial past. Working the Chesa- 
peake provides a glimpse of the 
people and places that define the 
region's special character and cap- 
tures a slice of life and of a time 
that may soon disappear. 

The book is available for $12.95 
from the Maryland Sea Grant Col- 
lege, H.J. Patterson Hall or the 
Cornell Maritime Press, P.O. Box 
456, Centreville, Maryland 21617.

Reversing Africa's Sahel Drought 
May Be Possible, Says New Study 

The desertification of Africa's 
Sahel region — currently in the 
midst of a 20-year drought that is 
starving millions of people — could 
continue indefinitely, according to 
a hew study by the Department of 
Meteorology's Center for Ocean- 
Land-Ahnosphere Interactions 

The study also indicates that a 
massive planting of trees south of 
the region, could reverse the 
desertification of the Sahel. 

Results from the research will be 
presented by College Park meteor- 
ologists Jagadish Shukla, Yongkang 
Xue and Daniel Paolino at an 
American Meteorology Society con- 
ference in Salt Lake City on Sept. 9- 
1 1, and at the American Geophysi- 
cal Union's December meeting in 
San Francisco. 

The Sahel, a one-mill ion -square- 
kilometer region south of the 
Sahara desert, encompasses .10 
countries including Ethiopia and 

According to the study by Shukla, 
Xue and Paolino, the Sahel drought 
may continue or even intensify as 
interactions between the atmos- 
phere and the land surface further 
reduce the amount of rainfall in the

"A reversal may be possible, how- 
ever, through the mass planting of 
trees first to the south of the region 
and then gradually extending 
northward," says Shukla. 

The researchers used highly com- 
plex coupled numerical models of 

the global atmosphere and bio- 
sphere to assess whether the 
drought in the Sahel is a perma- 
nent change or if it could be 
reversed through human inter- 

The climate model that the team 
used — one of the most sophisticat- 
ed in the world— consists of about 
one million equations that are 
numerically integrated by a super- 
computer to project the future state 
of the climate system. 

"We carried out two sets of com- 
puter simulation experiments," 
Shukla says. "First, we used a 
model of existing conditions in the 
Sahel region and found that if we 
leave the process to nature, the 
Sahel's drought may be perma- 
nent," and that the area may, in 
fact, be transforming into a desert. 

"In our other experiment, we 
looked at the possible effects on the 
Sahel climate if there were a mass 
planting of trees. We found that 
such a human intervention would 
increase moisture supply and rain- 
fall by 20 to 40 percent and might 
reverse the desertification process 
that is now occurring in the 

Shukla says that though a mass 
planting of trees to the immediate 
south of the Sahel may seem 
impractical, it is not impossible. 

"There is plenty of water to the 
south of the Sahel," he says. That 
water could be used to establish 
and sustain trees so that forests 
could be expanded northward 
toward the drought region. It 
would require a mass international 
commitment, and that is where the 
problem lies. But if we can launch 
Operation Desert Storm," he says, 
"we can also launch Operation 
Desert Bloom." 

According to Shukla, the Sahel 
has undergone a regular series of 
droughts over the ages. This can 
occur, he says, due to interactions 
between the oceans, the atmo- 
sphere and tiie land surface proces

ses. But the current drought is the 
worst in this century, and appears 
to be exacerbated by the activities 
of an increasing world population. 

"There are now so many human 
activities affecting the climate of 
this region — such as the deforesta- 
tion and degradation of land sur- 
faces^ — that the Sahel may now be 
in a situation where it can no 
longer recover from a serious 
drought," Shukla says. "What we 
are seeing here are naturally occur- 
ring climate fluctuations that are 
being amplified by human activi- 
ties. It may take a great human 
intervention — such as tree plant- 
ing — to pull it back." 

The study required 500 hours of 
number-crunching time on four 
supercomputers to establish the 
results for the two models. The 
work was sponsored by the 
National Science Foundation and 
the National Aeronautics and Space

Researchers License New Salmonella Tests 

A collaborative project between 
researchers at College Park and the 
Food Safety and Inspection Service 
of the U.S. Department of Agricul- 
ture has resulted in the licensing of 
two new Salmonella testing proce- 
dures and two pending joint 
applications between the university 
and FSIS. 

The new method, developed by 
Russ Miller and Chris Tate, both of 
FSIS, and Ed Mallinson, associate 
professor of veterinary medicine at 
the university, consists of a new 
system for environmental sampling 
of salmonellae. 

As part of the system, the team 
developed two new bacteriological 
plating media, designated BGAN 
and XLT4, which allow the growth 
of salmonellae, while inhibiting the 
growth of other competing bacteria, 

whose growth could mask the 
presence of salmonellae. 

A year ago, the Office of Tech- 
nology Liaison at the University of 
Maryland, acting with the USDA, 
licensed the general system to 
Environmental Systems Service, 
Ltd. of College Park, headquartered 
in Culpeper, Virginia. The non- 
exclusive license allows ESS to pro- 
vide poultry producers, and other 
customers needing environmental 
testing an accurate and efficient 
means of ensuring safety to con- 
sumers and producers, along with 
monitoring a quality environment 
once it has been established. 

"This is an example of university 
and government researchers joining 
forces to develop and transfer new 
technologies to benefit the public," 
said Technology Liaison Office 

Director Wayne Swann. 

Future Medical Technologies 
International, Inc. of West Palm 
Beach, Florida, recently obtained an 
exclusive license to the improved 
plating media for salmonellae 
detection from the Technology 
Liaison Office. Sam Joseph, a pro- 
fessor of microbiology at College 
Park, modified the media formula- 
tion and combined it with FMTI's 
technology of rapid microorganism 
detection. FMTT's proprietary tech- 
nology is a modified bacteriological 
plate design that traps organisms 
on the surface of a membrane 
located above the media. Nutrients 
are passed through the membrane, 
and bacterial colonies can be iden- 
tified and counted within hours.

Fifteen-Year Plan Outlines Future 
Development at College Park 

Copies of the university's new 
Facilities Master Plan, a road map 
for development at College Park 
through 2004, will be available 
early this fall. 

The plan, developed after more 
than a year of work by university 
staff members, state officials and 
private consultants, outlines the 
physical changes that the campus 
community can expect to see at 
College Park over the next 14 
years. The document was approved 
by the Board of Regents in June 
and copies will be available upon 
request from the Office of Resource 
Planning and Budget. 

Major changes outlined in the 
plan include a dramatic increase in 
the amount of campus building 
space, more expenditure on facil- 
ities renewal, and an emphasis on 
an improved environment for 
pedestrians, according to Brenda 
Testa, project coordinator for the 
Office of Resource Planning and 

The plan calls for additional 
classroom, laboratory and office 
space equal to about half the 
amount of the space currently 
available. Such additions would 
entail more than $500 million in 
new construction and are needed 
to bring College Park to a level 

equivalent to its peer institutions, 
according to the plan. 

In addition, the plan calls for a 
program of renewal of existing 
buildings that would cost approxi- 
mately $130 million over the 

In its goal of making College 
Park a more pedestrian-oriented 
campus, the plan outlines steps for 
closing several major roadways to 
most vehicles. Parts of Campus 
Drive, Paint Branch Drive and 
Stadium Drive could be closed to 
all but emergency vehicles under 
the plan. The details of this pro- 
gram still would have to be 
worked out by the campus com- 
munity. Testa says. 

While the changes outlined in 
the document represent official 
development plans for the campus, 
they all are not certain to occur. 
The document still must be 
approved by the Maryland Higher 
Education Commission and Mary- 
land's Department of Budget and 
Fiscal Planning. The actual projects 
listed in the report then must be 
approved by state planners and 
legislators on a case-by-case basis. 

For more information about the 
plan, call Brenda Testa, 405-5630.

Dudley Dillard Memorial Service to Be Held September 11 

A memorial service for the late 
Dudley Dillard, professor emeritus 
and former chair of the Department 
of Economics, will be held Wednes- 
day, September 11 at 3 p.m. in 
Memorial Chapel. 

Dillard, who died August 28 fol- 
lowing a heart attack at Leland 
Hospital, was an internationally 
recognized authority of Keynesian 
economics and the history of the 

North Atlantic community. He was 
chair of the economics department 
from 1952 to 1975 and helped lead 
it to national prominence. 

The author of numerous articles 
and books, his book The Economics 
of John Maynard Keynes was trans- 
lated into ten languages. 

Dillard served as chair of the 
Faculty Assembly, president of the 
American Association of University 

Professors, and president of Phi 
Beta Kappa. He also served as pre- 
sident of the Southern Economic 
Association, the Association of Evo- 
lutionary Economics and the 
Eastern Economic Association. He 
was a member of the U.S. Execu- 
tive Board of the American College 
in Paris since 1966, and served as 
its chair from 1979 to 1981.
