1. Welcome and 2. Spend a summer on the Juneau Icefield

1. Welcome to the ENVS/GEOG weblog.  Yearly I add ENVS, GEOG, and similar science students in intro ENVS/GEOG 102 course.  This weblog is our primary communication tool for such majors and periodically features job postings, scholarship info, academic opportunities, and internships.  Get your friends to subscribe too and send me any opportunities.

2. The Juneau Icefield Research Program (JIRP; is an 8-week long, summer expeditionary field course that traverses the Juneau Icefield each summer. Students spend a large portion of the course working on a research project with guidance from faculty members and/or graduate students. The program was started in 1946 and has had over 2,000 students through the years, many of whom have gone on to pursue careers in glaciology and climate science. Environmental Science and Geography students from UAS (e.g., three in the past two years) have participated in the program.  This is an incredible field course that is right in our backyard!!!!   Get up to 6 UAS ENVS credits for this program.
