Description 
This REU plans to instill Earth systems thinking and its application to the environment to undergraduates by providing them opportunities to work in interdisciplinary groups on a problem that reflects a complex, real-world situation and be trained to learn about research methods used in multiple fields or disciplines. A particular strength of the proposed REU model is the use of existing NOAA labs, NCAR and NIA, partnerships to provide cutting-edge research, educational, and professional development opportunities for undergraduate students.
