Study Abroad

Dr. Peter Knappett led Geoscience students to Guanajuato, Mexico on the theme “Field Methods in Environmental Geosciences.”  In this course, the students analyzed the competing demands for potable groundwater by farms, factories, and households while measuring components of the hydrologic cycle.

Drs. Wendy Jepson and Christian Brannstrom will lead TAMU students on a four-week summer study abroad to Costa Rica (Summer I, 2018).  Students will take Field Methods (GEOG 450) and Workshop in Environmental Studies (GEOG 380) focusing on the theme (“Water Security Challenges in Central America”).

WSI faculty participates in the recently funded NSF-Research Experience for Undergraduates “Ecohydrology of Tropical Montane Forests — Diversity in Science, Interdisciplinary Breadth, and Global Awareness” in Costa Rica. Research themes included in the REU are water governance & communities and hydrogeology.
