We had the honor to host Ian Bourg from Princeton University and learn about his exciting research on the coupled hydrology and mechanics of fine-grained soils and sedimentary rocks combining molecular dynamics and macro-scale simulations. His group works on several other interesting projects. Find out more here!

We had the chance to advertise our program and the broad range of career paths with a geoscience degree to admitted first-year students and their parents at the UGA New Dawgs Program. We love geology and we love to talk about it.

It was great to be back at AGU Fall Meeting (and have it be back in San Francisco), seeing old friends and colleagues, making new connections, meeting with students, and chairing the Environmental Vadose Zone Hydrology session. Thanks to everyone who contributed to make this year's edition so rich and memorable.

Charlotte Garing was awarded a NSF Major Research Instrument (MRI) grant as principal investigator to support the acquisition of a high resolution x-ray micro-CT system with in situ capabilities.

The instrument, Sigray's PrismaXRM, will be installed at UGA late Spring 2024 and will advance critical research in a broad range of disciplines. More information about the award is available here.
