2007
Emil C. Herkert, chair of the NJIT Board of Overseers, presented the NJIT Excellence in Research Award to Philip R. Goode, PhD, distinguished professor of physics; Kamalesh Sirkar, PhD, distinguished professor of chemical engineering; and Joseph Leung, PhD, distinguished professor of computer science, at NJIT's annual convocation. >>
2006
How the study of Earthshine continues to elucidate climate variables and how the use of Earthshine data may help to search for advanced life on distant planets, will be the foci of an upcoming panel discussion in Baltimore led by solar physicist Philip R. Goode, PhD, and a panel of researchers. Goode, distinguished professor at NJIT and director of Big Bear Solar Observatory, Calif., leads the talk on May 23 at 10 a.m. during the 2006 joint assembly of six geophysical societies. >>
Less sunlight reaching the Earth's surface has not translated into cooler temperatures, according to a team of solar physicists at NJIT. The scientists have observed that the amount of light reflected by Earth has increased since 2000. “Our findings have significant implications for the study of climate change,” said Philip R. Goode, PhD, principal investigator and distinguished professor of physics at NJIT. >>
2005
"The issues of climate change are very complicated,” said Philip Goode, PhD, to an audience of more than 200 faculty, staff, students and guests on April 6, 2005 in the NJIT Campus Center. Goode, a distinguished professor of physics at NJIT and director of the Big Bear Solar Observatory in California, shared highlights from his research on the correlation between climate changes on earth and changes in the sun's output, earth's reflectivity and greenhouse gases. "The models are impressive, but appreciable climate factors are not accounted for in models, so their predictions of the future are not precise,” he said. “We cannot postdict the past.”  >>
Philip Goode, PhD, distinguished professor of physics at NJIT and director of the Big Bear Solar Observatory, will discuss his research suggesting that climate changes on earth correlate with changes in the sun's output on April 6, 3-4:30 p.m. in the Campus Center Ballroom. The lecture will be webcast live that day by logging on to http://speakerforum.njit.edu/. For more information, call Jay Kappraff at 973-596-3490. Visit Past Press Release >>
Philip R. Goode, PhD, distinguished professor of physics at NJIT who has led the charge to revitalize a 15th-century technique for monitoring Earth's climate, has been named a Fellow of the American Physical Society.  The honor lauds Goode not only for his earthshine research and studies of solar structure and oscillations, but also for his critical national and international research leadership in solar astrophysics. >>
