Join our program and work with faculty and grad students to explore earth, air, and water!
The summer research program in Water in the Earth System is administered by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. The SROP was established in 2012.
Students work with faculty mentors and conduct cutting-edge research related to water. Projects range from water resourcing, microbial community structures, and predator-prey interactions to water contamination and glacial flow on Mars. This research can be applied to real-world challenges in environmental sciences and prepare scholars for future endeavors studying the earth, air, and water. Individual projects are designed to be completed within the 10-week timeframe of the summer program.
The primary objective of our SROP is to support and develop summer scholars into independent researchers. As such, the format of the research activities is designed around the development of research skills, interaction with interdisciplinary research teams, and opportunities to present research findings.
