Fall 2014 Newsletter

"I spent ten weeks at Penn State working with Dr. Jose Fuentes. We studied the downward ozone transport in thunderstorms near Manaus, Brazil to better understand how ozone is redistributed throughout the troposphere. This research may one day help with more accurate numerical models to predict climate change....The research and networking experience was priceless."

"This summer I spent six weeks in Wyoming digging up dinosaurs! The quarries I worked in contained the bones of sauropods, huge long-necked, long-tailed, plant-eating dinosaurs. I helped create quarry maps, measuring orientations, lengths, and widths of bones exposed in the quarry, and found some bones myself."
