APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN! https://tamu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_dcZlhp3nVWp1Tb7 Purpose: The goal of this NSF-sponsored REU is to provide undergraduate students with an opportunity to develop essential skills in designing, executing and disseminating original research that quantifies the hydrologic and biogeochemical fluxes in the watershed of a tropical montane cloud forest. Students will have an opportunity to work on field and […]
Wrapping up another successful AGU Fall Meeting. Si presented her poster on "Simulating Groundwater-Plant-Atmosphere Interactions in a Semiarid Savanna," REU alumni Leland Cohen presented his titled "Hydrogeologic Processes in a Transitional Tropical Forest," and Dr. Miller presented the results of her and Andrea’s stable isotope work in Costa Rica. Group mascot Graham Miller decided to […]
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.
The research group had a busy December! Si, Susy, and REU students Nathan, Esther, and Gracie all presented posters at the AGU Fall Meeting. Dr. Miller passed the Principles and Practice of Engineering Exam and is now licensed in Texas as a professional engineer (as of 12/12/2012, no less). We also said goodbye to our […]
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.
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.
