In the fall of 2014, a group of 235 incoming students became the first class of STEMCats at the University of Kentucky. This week, they are not only wrapping up their first year at UK

As Oso Disaster Anniversary Nears, Kentucky Geologists Urge Preparation for Landslides

As the anniversary of the most fatal landslide in the history of the continental United States approaches, we are reminded of the importance of evaluating geologic hazards and communicating that information to communities that may be at risk.

Dave Moecher Receives NSF Grant to Understand Magma Formation in Earth's Crust

The grant, a collaborative effort with Scott Samson and students at Syracuse University, will support two years of research from a UK graduate student, undergraduate student and at least one Lexington high school student, who will each work on a different component of the research.

Morocco, Maps, and Precipitation: The NSF Grant with Ben Currens

In the summer of 2014, several undergraduate and graduate students from the College of Arts and Sciences received a grant from the National Science Foundation. This NSF grant gave them the means to pursue research in various fields as they explored their interests and prepared for their potential futures. In this podcast, we speak to Ben Currens, a graduate student in the Earth and Environmental Science Department. Listen in as Currens discusses his experiences with research and the unexpected turns that he has found along the way.

Finding Faults: Inside Sean Bemis' Research

Sean Bemis put his hands together side by side to demonstrate two plates of the earth’s crust with a smooth boundary running between them. But that boundary is not always smooth and those plates do not always sit together neatly, which makes the earth’s crust a dynamic and complex surface.

Jump Starting Success: Whitney M. Young Scholars

Whitney M. Young scholars gain valuable college experience in the classroom and beyond during the summer institute.

Compassionate Science: Edward Lo

Graduate student Edward Lo studies the sediment patterns and hydrology of a region in Brazil called the Pantanal, which is the world’s largest freshwater wetlands. Often American geologists base their research on a region within the U.S. One of the many things that makes Lo and his work unique is his commitment to research abroad.
