Outreach and Travel

As research scientists and faculty members, our staff are networked with a host of people in addition to our students. In writing proposals, they must contact other scientists to do collaborative work. They also work with local businesses that have concerns and questions about climate and weather. They have visited local schools for presentations, and attended conferences where they met with others in their field of expertise.

Visit the websites below to see a sample of some of their research work and ongoing outreach activities.

He Sapa Oyate: From the Field to the Fair (an NSF-sponsored weeklong camp held at SDSM&T in June 2012).

Student Seminars: Our students are required to present a short seminar which is open to the campus and the public. Seminar topics are taken from their research work, and will often become articles in refereed scientific publications. For a list of the seminars presented in the fall 2013 semester, follow this link: http://www.ias.sdsmt.edu/Fall2013Seminars.htm. Links to abstracts are provided.

Campus events: We participate in many campus activities, such as GoToMines, High Plains Regional Science Fair, and Space Days at SDSM&T.

Travel: Several of our research staff, as well as graduate students, travel to the American Geophysical Union and American Meteorological Society annual meetings. The staff, as well as the students,  present posters or an oral talk on the subject of their research.
