’Weaponizing Water’ panelists discuss benefits of hydrodiplomacy and dangers of hydrowarfare

Water weaponizing — damming rivers to hoard water for upstream users or deny it to downstream users — goes back centuries. But panelists at Norwich University’s recent Military Writers’ Symposium said sophisticated tools and global warming’s ravages have reduced water stores and intensified weaponizing’s global threat.

Virtual events, webinars will invite exploration of topics for possible research

Before scholars can solve problems or build hypotheses, they must ask questions. And in learning, Dr. Amy Woodbury Tease says, any question, no matter how seemingly off-the-wall, deserves a hearing, and maybe, research.

Before they can commission and serve their country, future armed forces personnel need a feel for the field. Last weekend, ROTC students sharpened their tactical aptitudes, during three days of field training exercises.
