Undergraduate Research Opportunities
Climate Dynamics research in AOES encompasses atmospheric science, physical oceanography, and the interactions between atmosphere, land and ocean that affect climate. Interested students should contact Dr. Barry Klinger. Summer internships as well as research credit during the semester are available. It is preferred that students who participate in research have at least a 3.0 GPA, some experience with a computer language such as Fortran, C++, or Matlab, and at least a semester of calculus.
Undergraduate students majoring in Earth Sciences may have the option to complete a year-long Honors Thesis. Exciting Honors Thesis research opportunities are currently available in structural geology, coastal geomorphology, and vertebrate paleontology. Interested students should contact Stacey Verardo for more information.
Students who have completed both Introductory Geology (GEOL 102) and Vertebrate Paleontology (GEOL 334) may also have the opportunity to conduct research with Dr. Mark D. Uhen as part of an Independent Study.
