UNL Today


UNL scientists are part of a coalition helping two American Indian tribes prepare for drought and other climate fluctuations. The tribes — the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho — have worked with climate and social scientists in the past year to prepare regular climate and drought summaries for use in making water and resource decisions. Now, a second phase launched this summer will generate an assessment to help the tribes reduce the likelihood of future drought-related impacts.

Just as organizations have computer security and network policies to prevent viruses, hacks and other threats, in the future it may be necessary to adopt business policies to prevent “car hacking,” according to UNL's Patrick Barrett, director of transportation services at UNL. He is part of national group that studied the potential threat — realized in Chrysler's recent 1.4 million vehicle recall — last year.
