MSU Undergraduate Intern Analyzes Stable Water Isotopes To Better Understand Water Flow Path Dynamics

Hi there.

This is Sam Leuthold, and this summer I worked on a project using stable water isotopes to think about water flow path dynamics in the Gallatin Valley. The isotopes we were interested in measuring this summer were 18O and 2H, also known as deuterium (D). We had study sites all over the Gallatin Valley, and in Hyalite Canyon (fig. 1), and ended up with a pretty sizeable sample set to analyze at the end of the summer!

MSU Undergraduate Intern Researches History Via Tree Cores

My name is Aden Norris, and the project I’ve joined this summer has been a well-rounded exposure to the science of dendrochronology or the dating of environmental changes and events by observing patterns in annual tree rings.  The project aims to reconstruct a past wildfire history of the land in Flathead Indian Reservation by observing patterns in tree cores taken from the area.  My help with project began in the lab where I was trained to process the tree cores collected from the previous summer.  Each tree core must go through a series of steps before meaningful data can be collected.

Follow up: 30 Science Communications and Outreach Ideas in 30 Minutes

Early this month, I was invited to give a talk called “30 Science Communications and Outreach Ideas in 30 Minutes” as part of the Montana Institute on Ecosystems’ Rough Cut Science series. Missed the talk? You can see it -- and other archived talks here: http://montanaioe.org/outreach/ioe-rough-cut-science-series

 

Study guide: How to interrogate a soil

Want to be ready for Dr. Tony Hartshorn's Rough Cut Science talk on Feb. 18? I'm so excited that Tony helped create the first-ever online study guide to complement his Rough Cut Talk! If you're giving a Rough Cut Talk and want to make a study guide, I'll help you!

We'll be at Blackfoot River Brewing in Helena from 4pm until about 5:30

MOOC discussion group synopsis, Week 2

The World Bank is offering a four-week massive open online course (MOOC) called Warmer World: Why a 4-degree C Warmer World Must be Avoided.

Participants in the course (and non-participants, too) have gathered on the MSU campus to talk about issues related to the course.

Having trouble choosing sides today?

Those of us who love animals might be having trouble choosing sides today for the Big Game! If you don't come down on one side of the Pandion haliaetus vs.
