Biosphere-Atmosphere-Hydrosphere Interactions in a Changing Global Environment provides a truly interdisciplinary and hands-on experience in a field biology and atmospheric science. Students engage with all phases of research, from hypothesis formulation and data gathering to analysis, interpretation, and communication of scientific findings. During this nine-week program, students will:
- Work closely with a selected mentor/professor as part of an ongoing research project
- Design, conduct, analyze, and report on a research project of their own
- Participate in special workshops and group discussions designed to provide the philosophical bases and technical tools needed to carry out scientific research
- Contribute to the body of knowledge that can help address many of Earth's most important environmental challenges.
REU is funded by the National Science Foundation. REU students receive a stipend of $5,000, travel and research supplies allowance, and room and board expenses at UMBS.
