Department of Geography granted REU support for the Soltis Center


- Released on Jan 27, 2010

The National Science Foundation (NSF), through the proposal of the Texas A&M Department of Geography, will be funding an REU site at the Soltis Center for Research and Education. This REU site will provide thirty (ten per year) undergraduate students with an opportunity to develop essential skills in the design, execution, and dissemination of original research in tropical ecosystems and ecohydrology within the tropical montane cloud forest. The proposed project is called “Eco-Hydrology of a Tropical Montane Cloud Forest” and will be headed by Dr. Chris Houser and Dr. Anthony Cahill. The expected outcomes of this project are numerous including: joint faculty-student publications in leading research journals, seminars at host institutions in the United States and at the University of Costa Rica, as well as providing an international field experience for Texas A&M students.
