Research Experiences for Undergraduates in Climate Science

The climate system involves highly complex interactions among the atmosphere, oceans, cryosphere, lithosphere, and biosphere; unraveling the mechanisms that control the Earth’s climate is one of the most intellectually challenging scientific problems of the day!

      THE 2018 REU PROGRAM WILL RUN FROM MAY 30 TO AUGUST 3                                     

The application period for the 2018 REU program will open on December 15, 2017 and close on February 15, 2018.                                   

OBJECTIVES OF THE REU PROGRAM              

    • To bring together a diverse group of students in an environment where they can learn how to ask, answer, and communicate research questions in the area of climate science by using cutting edge tools to apply the scientific method: hypothesis, observation, experimentation, data analysis, interpretation, prediction, and dissemination of results.
    • To instruct students how to use and become fluent in accessing the primary scientific literature, gain experience in experimental design and data collection, and participate in experiments using both up-to-date observation systems and numerical climate models.
  • To acquire skills in integrating interdisciplinary research and estimate rates of environmental change to address problems related to climate change.
