UROP 2017 Participants

EOAS had five undergraduate students participating in the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) this year. The five students conducted research, met with UROP Student Leaders and presented their research at the Undergraduate Research Symposium.  Congratulations to Lizzie Grater (Dr. Robert Spencer), Kariza Hossain (Dr. Mainak Mookherjee), Francesca Lappin (Dr. Henry Fuelberg), Jennifer Magi (Dr. Angela Knapp), and Alan Soroka (Dr. Mariana Fuentes) on this accomplishment.

Apalachicola River Project

A unique team of FSU faculty and students is working with concerned citizens to put the spotlight on a critically endangered river ecosystem in Florida. The Apalachicola River Project is an effort at FSU that draws upon the talents of students and faculty from multiple departments, including EOAS Environmental Science and Policy. Jeremy Owens, assistant professor of geology in and adjunct professor Danny Goodard, are leading the capstone class for EOAS.

Dr. Jeff Chanton

EOAS Professor Dr. Jeff Chanton has been named the Robert O. Lawton Distinguished Professor, the highest honor faculty can bestow on a colleague. To receive this award a facult member is to have achieved true distinction nationally and/or internationally. Only one FSU faculty member each year is granted this high honor, and to have such a prestigious award bestowed on one of our own close colleagues in EOAS is both thrilling and gratifying.

Nicolas Wienders

EOAS associate research scientist Nicolas Wienders, has developed a new technology that can track the oceans’ currents and surface circulation. He invented the Stokes Drifters to track and monitor the ocean currents at the surface. Once deployed, these GPS-equipped, disk-shaped instruments can easily be tracked and help scientists determine the direction of ocean currents. The drifters will transmit time, position and optional data such as temperature and salinity via satellite at programmable intervals.
