Oregon State University’s new maps of 30-year U.S. climate “normals” show the area east of the Rockies is getting wetter, the Southwest is getting drier, and temperatures are inching upward – with daily lows rising faster than daily highs.
“When we publish the new normals every 10 years, we’re taking away one decade from a 30- year period and adding another, which means the changes we see are subtle,” said Chris Daly, professor of geospatial climatology and the founding director of Oregon State’s PRISM Climate Group.
Advancements in semiconductors through surface chemistry: an interview with Professor Gregory Herman
Gregory Herman, professor of chemical engineering at Oregon State University, is a leading researcher in next-generation oxide semiconductor materials. Herman made the jump to Oregon State after collaborating with the university for many years, first at HP and later at Sharp Laboratories of America.

The Ambient Pressure Surface Characterization Laboratory (APSCL) has unique capabilities for preparation and characterization of samples in a range of environments
Kevin Brown is a complex systems scientist. He researches complex biological systems, particularly networks arising in systems biology, systems neuroscience, and cognitive science. He employs methodology from machine learning, dynamical systems, network theory, Bayesian and nonparametric statistics, computational biology, and employing a mix of data-driven and model-driven approaches.

Every engineer spends countless hours learning their field inside and out, but only a relative few ever launch a company to bring their inventions to the world. Luckily, the Oregon State University Advantage Accelerator helps faculty, staff, students, and alumni take that critical step by shepherding new companies through all phases of the startup process.
