December 28, 2019 0 comments ISMAANA Admin Categories Patrika Q4 2019

Our 2019 ISMAANA East Coast annual picnic & get-together held on Saturday, August 9 in south New Jersey successfully. We had laughter with lighter conversations, plenty of food & some pretty serious discussion on energy & climate at this time. We had both morning & dinner session.

During the dinner session alumni, Atul Arya (’78 Petroleum Engineering) presented a talk on Energy & Climate: Past, Present and the Future. The presentation is enclosed for our alumni around the globe. Please abide by all the copyright laws applicable as mentioned in the enclosed soft copy attachment while using this material. You can read the presentation at your leisure (in subsequent pages), and Atul could be reached via e-mail (atularya@gmail.com) for any question/comment about the enclosed presentation:
