The University of Guam’s Water & Environmental Research Institute of the Western Pacific (WERI) is offering two two-year research assistantships beginning August 2018 (fall semester, Fanuchånan) or January 2019 (spring semester, Fañomnåkan) for research work that can be applied toward a Master of Science thesis in UOG’s graduate Environmental Science program.

This project is funded by NASA EPSCOR, and is collaborative with the University of Hawaii’s College of Engineering (UHCOE). Researchers on Guam will use self-guiding unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) developed by UHCOE engineering faculty and students to collect, analyze, and interpret thermal imagery to locate and estimate freshwater discharge into coastal waters from the limestone aquifer of northern Guam.

If you would like to do cutting-edge research in remote-sensing, GIS, and/or coastal karst hydrogeology while earning an Master of Science in Environmental Science and living and working on a tropical island in the western Pacific, we invite you to contact Dr. John Jenson, Director, WERI, and/or Dr. Romina King, Assistant Professor of Geography, University of Guam, to learn more about this superb opportunity.
