  • April 21, 2012. Led by Lauren McPhillips, Sheila Saia, and Kyle Delwiche, the Soil and Water Lab hosted an educational workshop for middle school girls during the annual Expanding Your Horizons Conference. During the workshop girls participated in a hands-on project using watershed models, simulated land-use changes, and "pollutants" to experience for themselves how watersheds behave in response to storms.
  • March 2, 2012. The Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering hosted the annual BEE Research Symposium. This symposium gives graduate students within the department an opportunity to share their research with oral presentations or posters. Symposium abstract from 2011 is available here.
  • December 5-9, 2011. R's Emerging Environmental Modeling Community, American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting. Josephine Archibald, Dan Fuka, Michael Walter, and Zachary Easton convened a session regarding the open-source programming language R and it's benefits for community modeling projects.
