We are now accepting applications for the 2014 Research Experience for Undergraduates on Sustainable Land and Water Resources. Application deadline: EXTENDED until March 4, 2014. Program dates: June 9 - August 15, 2014. Visit http://reuslawr.wordpress.com for more information and an application. This innovative Research Experience for Undergraduates Program takes place in 3 locations: On the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa reservation near Cloquet, MN At Salish Kootenai College in Pablo, Montana At St. Anthony Falls Laboratory, University of Minnesota, in Minneapolis, Minnesota 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 Earthsurface dynamics, geology, ecology, limnology and paleolimnology, and hydrology principles and techniques required for sustainable land and water management and restoration. 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. -Diana Dalbotten, Ph.D. Director of Diversity National Center for Earth-surface Dynamics University of Minnesota St. Anthony Falls Laboratory 2 3rd Avenue SE Minneapolis, MN 55414 (612) 624-4608 (612) 624-0066 (fax) email: [email protected] website: www.nced.umn.edu The National Center for Earth-surface Dynamics is an NSF Science and Technology Center.
