Dr. Miller and Andrea DuMont presented their work on transpiration and groundwater at the Soltis Center at the annual meeting of the Association for Tropical Biology in San Jose, Costa Rica. Collaborator Chris Houser also gave a presentation on the REU.
Congratulations to Si Gou, who won the Farvolden Award at the 2013 National Ground Water Summit in San Antonio for her presentation "Understanding Groundwater Uptake by Phreatophytic Vegetation using a System Dynamics Modeling Approach." Also congratulations to Andrea DuMont, whose project "Isotopic Analysis to Determine Groundwater and Stream Water Interactions in a Tropical Forest Catchment" […]
This month, Si submitted her first journal article completed at TAMU, to Ecohydrology. She was also invited to present her current work at the China Institute of Water Resources and Hydropower Research, where she completed her M.S. degree. Dr. Miller and friend of the group Dr. Georgianne Moore traveled to Costa Rica to repair research […]
Just back from an exciting trip to the Soltis Center in Costa Rica. The REU ecohydrology group has made great progress in the first three weeks of the program! Check out the blog and be sure to Like us on Facebook.
Applications for the Ecohydrology REU being accepted until January 31, 2011.
Dr. Miller will be presenting the results of Catalina Suarez’s research, “Quantifying Transpiration and Plant Water Stress in a Bioretention System,” at the upcoming EWRI conference. The presentation is scheduled for 1:30 p.m., during the Urban Watersheds Management Symposium. View 2011 EWRI Abstract.
It’s sapapalooza! We’ve been quite busy assembling sap flow sensors for use at the White Creek Watershed and on the LID project. Below: Cat Suarez tests one of the thermocouples using a multimeter.
The Costa Rica REU in Ecohydrology is getting some good press. Research in the cloud forest is an exciting opportunity, and I’m looking forward to working with undergraduates on it next summer. Be sure to stay tuned for updates on it and the application process.
