Sarah Bleakney participated in a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) project in Costa Rica and Texas in 2013. Sarah was part of a team of three undergraduate students and five faculty members who carried out research on tropical climatology and meteorology. She spent part of the summer at Texas A&M in College Station, Texas, and part at the Soltis Center field station in northern Costa Rica. Sarah worked in the Geography Department’s Laboratory of Paleoenvironmental Research as a Geography 494 student last semester, studying sediment core samples from Costa Rica. She presented her research in a poster at the SEDAAG conference in Roanoke.
