Academic Level:
Undergraduate Students

Description:
This REU introduces undergraduate students to interdisciplinary research on sustainable land and water resources that is essential for improving management practices. Students will work on one of three teams using an interdisciplinary team-oriented approach that emphasizes quantitative and predictive methods. Student projects will integrate the Earth-surface dynamics, geology, ecology, limnology and paleolimnology, and hydrology principles and techniques required for sustainable land and water management and restoration. Visit the REU bblog for great pictures: http://ncedreuslawr2013.wordpress.com/. The program is open to undergraduate students majoring in civil engineering, geosciences, ecology, mathematics, or related fields. We encourage applications from students who have been historically under-represented in their discipline and from first-generation college students. The program provides transportation, food, and housing plus a stipend to all participants.
