A Man of Education and Science Gives Back
Dr. Jerry Krockover, EAPS Emeritus Professor, has inspired thousands of science and earth science teachers for over 40 years. His current impact is felt outside the classroom. Dr. Krockover and his wife, Sharon, have started a graduate fellowship and an undergraduate research scholarship to support students financially.
An ammonia-water slurry may swirl below Pluto's icy surface

Study: Flood models need to include cities' impact on rainfall
A study by Dev Niyogi, professor of EAPS and agronomy, and collaborators at China's Tsinghua University finds that current flood models do not account for cities' impact on local rainfall patterns, an oversight that could lead to significantly underestimating the severity and frequency of floods in urban areas.
Research Experience Realized
EAPS Professor Frisbee and the SURF program provide a research experience to a student over the summer. Philine Bogeholz discusses her research and campus experience.
