Planet Earth and Its Energy Balance (a Giant Climatological "Heat Engine")
Atmospheric Compositions
Other Atmospheric Matters Which Also Modify the Energy Balance (Aerosols, Albedo, Water Vapor, Clouds, etc.)
Earth Temperature Measurements (the "Ice Hokey" Temperature Curve)--Global Warming
Greenhouse Effects , Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) 
The History of the Modern Weather Instruments and Stations
Representativeness of Global Weather Station Network
Paleo-climatological Studies (Polar Ice Coring, etc.) & Applicability (Natural and Non-Anthropogenic)
Emissions and Concentrations of Carbon Dioxide, Methane, Nitrogen Oxide, etc. (Natural vs. Manmade)--Recent and Ancient
Global Warming Potential of GHGs – Natural vs. Anthropogenic 
Emissions and Concentrations of Water Vapor (Natural vs. Manmade)
Sources and Sinks of Carbon Dioxide, etc. (Oceans vs. Lands) and Accountability
Vertical Profiles of Carbon Dioxide, Ozone, Water Vapor, etc.
Inter-Hemispheric Energy/Substance Transports (Northern vs. Southern Hemispheres)
Why Ozone Holes Are Bigger in Southern Hemisphere?

Presenter’s Bio: 
Dr. James Whang, PhD, PE, received his BS degree (Sanitary and Civil Engineering) from National Cheng-Kung Univ., Taiwan, ROC and his MS and PhD (Environmental Engineering) from Univ. of Maryland.  He is a registered Professional Engineer (PE) in Environmental/Civil Engineering since 1977.  Dr. Whang individually and together with his company has been receiving numerous awards and honors in the past 3 decades from the City of Rockville, Montgomery County, Maryland State, local and/or international associations, and U.S. Department of the Navy (AEGIS Excellence Awards).  He was named as one of the top 25 CEOs in Montgomery County in 2007 and has served as the Chair of the Advisory Board for the Great Washington, DC area of the International Leadership Foundation in the past years.

AEPLOG, Inc. and its subsidiaries (including 3eTI), under Dr. Whang’s leadership, have successfully developed and commercialized several unique and well marketed technology products, including innovative environmental pollution control technologies.  Dr. Whang has authored more than 100 technical papers and report in the environmental engineering and science, encompassing environmental compliance assurance and audit, hazardous waste/material minimization, control and/or remediation of multi-media contamination problem; and development and implementation of cleaner “green technologies”.  He has been frequently invited to speak on professional conferences including a participation of the Energy Summit to organize, plan, and establish the Maryland Clean Energy Center.

Beside his expertise in biomedical/biotechnology, he also leads his organizations to have successfully developed other specialty products including: advanced composite materials; tele-monitoring, tele-maintenance, distance-learning, distance tech-assistance; microelectronic shock sensors; wireless microelectronic sensors, virtual instruments/interfaces, and internet/intranet connectivity; radio-frequency identification (RFID) chips for communication, safety monitoring, and defense industries; which has brought about positive impacts on national defense/security, environmental security, and selected industries. Dr. Whang was appointed as an expert consultant on US Army Science Board by the Secretary of US Dept.of Defense and the Secretary of the US Army.

This Biomed/Biotech SIG event is cosponsored by the Monte Jade Science and Technology Association of Greater Washington (www.MonteJadeDC.org) and NTU Alumni Association at DC (www.ntuaadc.org).
