Zooplankton study could bridge gap between ecology, evolution

Matthew Walsh, assistant professor of biology, will test aquatic habitats in Alaska and Wisconsin to better document, understand, and predict how organisms respond to natural change and change that is influenced by humans or environmental pollutants.

Dr. Walsh has received a $220,000 National Science Foundation Long-Term Ecological Research grant to examine zooplankton in more than 20 lakes in Alaska and Wisconsin.

For more than 30 years, scientists have documented site responses of natural populations and communities to rising temperatures, increased urbanization, changes in nutrient availability, and the spread of invasive species. Until now, they have not examined the extent to which these responses reflect evolutionary change in the aquatic habitats.

Zooplanktons are organisms that can control the amount of phytoplankton and nutrients in the systems in which they reside.

Planetarium produces first active stereo 3-D planetarium show about NASA's SOFIA mission

A new active stereo 3-D show at The Planetarium at UT Arlington will transform learning for students and planetarium visitors interested in exploring the mysteries of our galaxy and beyond.

The Planetarium, which is part of the College of Science, soon will begin public showings of SOFIA 3-D, a short science film based on NASA’s research and outreach mission, Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, or SOFIA. The 3.5-minute film will also be shown prior to other future documentaries.

“It has taken several years, but we are thrilled that we are finally able to introduce this significant film to the public,” says Manfred Cuntz, professor of physics and principal investigator on an $88,000 grant. NASA funded the production of the film and equipment needed to install, test, and produce content for the 3-D projection system.

MAVPark enforcement to begin October 5

Faculty and staff members and students who have not yet registered their vehicles through MAVPark, the University’s new decal-free permit system, are asked to do so immediately at

Monitoring and enforcement of vehicles permitted to be parked on campus begins Monday, Oct. 5, following the traditional start-of-the-semester grace period. Owners of unauthorized vehicles are subject to a citation and a $50 fine.

MAVPark is an online service that allows students, faculty, staff and visitors to purchase parking permits, manage payments for campus parking meters, and review and pay parking citations. Students and employees who regularly park vehicles on campus obtain a virtual permit by paying the parking permit fee online and registering their license plate number in the MAVPark system.

Beginning Oct. 5, parking enforcement personnel will monitor campus lots with license plate recognition technology and will compare the plates of parked vehicles against the MAVPark database. Owners of unpermitted vehicles are subject to citations and fines.

The University thanks all members of the UT Arlington community who have purchased parking permits and registered their vehicles through the MAVPark system. Doing so enables the University to more accurately assess campus parking demand and route traffic to the best available lots.

Candidates for AVP for research visit campus

Candidates for associate vice president for research will meet with administrators, faculty, staff, and students.

Kurt Zinn of the University of Alabama-Birmingham is the first candidate. His public session is 3-4 p.m. Monday, Sept. 14, in Room 601 of Nedderman Hall. Dr. Zinn is a professor of radiology, medicine, surgery, pathology, chemistry, nutrition sciences, and electrical and computer engineering, and director of the Advanced Medical Imaging Research Division and the Preclinical Imaging Shared Facility.

Other candidates and their campus visits are Steve West, Tuesday, Sept. 29; Jon Weidanz, Monday, Oct. 5; and Gautam Pillay, Tuesday, Oct. 6.

Each candidate will speak and then answer questions.

After-hours crisis line now open

A new crisis line offers crisis counseling to students after hours, when the Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) office is closed.

The MAVS Talk After-Hours Crisis Line is 817-272-TALK (8255).

The after-hours line is staffed by Protocall. Crisis counselors will assess students for safety and provide information about campus and community services. Read more about CAPS’ emergency procedures and contact information.

The new crisis line is part of a UT System initiative to provide services after hours and prevent suicide on campus.

CAPS staff are available to address your concerns about UT Arlington students. The discussion usually involves issues related to a student's mental health or wellness that have become apparent in the classroom or in individual interactions. For an appointment, call 2-3671.

For information on other CAPS services, go to

Emergency electrical generator testing Friday

Facilities Management will test the emergency electrical generators 1-2:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 11.

Buildings involved are the Central Library, Chemistry Research Building, Davis Hall, Life Science Building, Science Hall, Texas Hall, and University Hall.

The test will only affect the electrical services tied to each building’s generator, not the entire building. There will be a slight “blip” lasting a half-second as the electrical service transfers to the generator and another as it is transferred back to the normal building service. Keep computer work in progress saved during this time to prevent any possible data loss.

Questions? Call Toby Buhrkuhl at 972-832-1490 or Jeff Johnson at 817-798-8456.
