Lori Weeden

Lori Weeden is a Lecturer in Environmental, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. Professor Weeden’s contribution to the CCI falls into the education category. As a lecturer, teaching is her primary responsibility with service coming in a close second. Her classes include General Geology and Weather and Climate, both of which are required for the interdisciplinary Climate Change and Sustainability minor. In addition, she has been involved in evaluating the water chemistry of local tributaries of both the Concord and Merrimack rivers, and has established a database with the results and shared that information with her community partner, the Lowell Parks and Conservation Trust.

Prof Weeden feels the topic of climate change blends naturally with the earth sciences. Simply stated, the more one understands the intricacies of Earth’s systems, the better one can communicate the urgency of climate action. She also teaches Environmental Geochemistry, Earth History, Forensic Geology, Environmental Science and Environmental Problems seminars. She is currently the Vice President of the New England Chapter of the National Association of Geosciences Teachers.
