Jackson State University Students to Study Hydrology in Wyoming

jsu-thumbThis summer a group of students from historically Black Jackson State University in Mississippi will travel to Wyoming to participate in research projects on hydrology, ecology, and geophysics with students at the University of Wyoming. The Jackson State students will live on the University of Wyoming campus and do field work in geophysics and water analysis in the Laramie and Snowy mountain ranges.

Steve Holbrook, a professor of geology and geophysics at the University of Wyoming, states, “It’s a chance for Jackson State students to see geography and ecological systems that are very different from what they are used to in Mississippi. We hope it is an enriching experience.”

Next year, students from the University of Wyoming will travel to Mississippi to study organic soil and deciduous forests with students from Jackson State University. The exchange program is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
