Project Description

The research team of undergraduate geoscience students that participated in the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program traveled to Svalbard and conducted independent research projects. Research focused on how climate influences the modern glacial, river, and lake systems, in order to better interpret the sediment record of past climate change.
