Tilford Field Studies Scholarship - Undergrad Division and used it to partially fund her field camp program in Taos, NM. On the drive to field camp, students stopped at many geologically interesting locations.  Julia is currently enrolled in the Geological Engineering Masters program at the University of Utah.

Jacob Carstens

EOAS Meteorology undergraduate Jacob Carstens has been awarded the Orville Family Endowed Scholarship from the American Meteorological Society. This scholarship honors the Orville family's more than 80 years of continuous service to meteorology and is awarded annually to outstanding meteorology undergraduates. The scholarship is actively sponsored by Dr. Richard E. Orville at Texas A&M. Jacob will also receive funding to travel to Seattle for the AMS conference in January.

Deepwater Horizon location

Scientists working in the Gulf of Mexico have found that contaminants from the massive 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill lingered in the subsurface water for months after oil on the surface had been swept away or dispersed. In a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences,  researchers, including EOAS Professor Dr. Jeff Chanton, lay out their findings that contaminants released during the spill combined with phytoplankton to create what has been called a ‘dirty blizzard.’
