Students visit Cold Regions Research and Engineering Lab (CRREL)

Atmospheric Science juniors and seniors spent Tuesday at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) in Hanover, NH. To reinforce concepts introduced in various core Atmospheric Science classes, the group of students watched presentations by CRREL scientists before touring various research areas in the Engineer Research and Development Center. They examined ice cores in the Cold Rooms and explored several other facilities including the Frost Effects Research Facility, the Ice Engineering Facility, and the Field Research Areas. They also learned about various career paths and had the opportunity to network with professionals in the field.


Atmospheric Sciences students and faculty present at Youth Environmental Summit

Two Lyndon Atmospheric Sciences students, Sarah Sickles and Lauren Cornell, joined Dr. Hanrahan at the Vermont Youth Environmental Summit in Barre, VT.  The group gave a presentation called, “It’s Our Climate – Let’s Talk About It,” which was followed by an open discussion with middle and high school students.  The Lyndon group also hosted a table during an exhibition and scavenger hunt which allowed ATM students to practice the important skill of climate change communication.  They had the opportunity to visit with local youth who shared their concerns and wanted to learn more about climate change mitigation.
