NCED REU on Sustainable Land and Water Resources:

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.

For more in depth student experiences, visit the REU 2012 section, accessible from the menu above.

Program Dates: June 10 – August 16, 2013

Teams: St. Anthony Falls Laboratory, University of Minnesota: Stream restoration-related experimental work;  Salish Kootenai College, Montana: Effects of surface water management practice on groundwater resources; Fond du Lac Reservation in northern Minnesota: Paleolimnology and current habitat conditions of wild rice lakes. An All-Team Gathering at the conclusion of the program will bring all teams together to celebrate their summer research in a research symposium, with talking circles to discuss research in a community context, and hands-on experiments in St. Anthony Falls Laboratory facilities.
