Field Stations 2024

Nexus of Land and Water: Dust on Snow

Field Stations is an immersive integrative studies program that focuses on environmental change in ecologically-critical places. Field Stations 2024 will be convened in partnership with the Mountain Studies Institute with focus on the San Juan Mountains and the San Juan, Animas, and Dolores watersheds. Scientists, land owners and managers, tribes, universities and participating organizations working in the field of environmental science, policy and public health, will come together to address the current issue of dust deposition on snow in the Southwest, which is expected to rapidly increase due to aridification and complex wind patterns. The program will be a hybrid in-person and remote model taking place in the spring and summer of 2024. Scholars, post-graduates, doctoral and graduate students are encouraged to apply when applications open in the winter of 2023.
