    Research in Antarctica

    The McMurdo Dry Valleys--the largest relatively ice-free zone on the Antarctic continent--has been studied as part of the National Science Foundation's Long-Term Ecological Research Network since 1993. The principal investigator on the project is Diane McKnight, a fellow at CU-Boulder's Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research and a professor of civil, environmental and architectural engineering. Several Environmental Studies graduate students have done research in Antarctica with Diane McKnight.

    Environmental Research in Bangladesh

    Poor water quality due to saltwater intrusion and arsenic are significant concerns within communities in Southwest Bangladesh. Amanda Carrico is collaborating with a team of researchers funded by the Office of Naval Research to implement the Bangladesh Environment and Migration Survey (BEMS). This study examines how environmental conditions influence the migration of people, and the extent to which migration fosters resilience to environmental stress.

    Uganda Wildlife Authority Collecting Weather Data

    The Albertine Rift region in East Africa is one of the world's most threatened biodiversity hotspots due to dense smallholder farming, high levels of land and resource pressures, and habitat loss and conversion. Joel Hartter and his colleagues' research through the Population, Environment, and Climate in the Albertine Rift (PECAR) project results highlight the need for fine-scale climate information to assist agro-ecological communities in developing effective adaptive management.

Water

Tyler is primarily interested in the links between algal community structure and biogeochemical cycles, and how these relationships may apply to broader freshwater ecosystem structure and function. Currently, he is investigating temporal, spatial, and physical controls on microbial mats in the Dry Valleys of Antarctica.

Policy

Jessica Weinkle finished her PhD in Environmental Studies in December 2013.  While working on her MA in Climate and Society at Columbia University she became interested in natural hazards, risk perception and the use of climate and weather forecasts in policy and society. Today, she studies the insurability of the hurricane risk with particular attention given to the use of science by different interests. Jessica did her undergraduate work in zoology at the University of Texas at Austin.
