PAID Summer REU Weather, Climate, and Society Research Experience for Undergraduates

We have an exciting interdisciplinary program that will focus on rising sophomores pairing each participant in a team with other WCS REU students and with research mentors in the physical and social sciences.

This Weather, Climate, and Society (WCS) REU will be hosted by the University of South Florida (USF). We have an exciting interdisciplinary program that will focus on rising sophomores pairing each participant in a team with other WCS REU students and with research mentors in the physical and social sciences. The teams will conduct research on one of a range of topics from the social and physical factors which affect hurricane evacuation decision-making, to assessing the social, economic, and environmental vulnerabilities of coastal regions to sea level rise, and developing strategies to adapt and mitigate sea level rise impacts.

In addition to an intensive 9-week mentored research experience, the program provides experiential learning, professional development workshops, remote seminars that offer interaction with national and international scientists, trainings in social and physical research techniques and interdisciplinary perspectives on social and physical aspects ,and impacts of severe weather and climate related disasters.

Students are paid a $500/week stipend along with free housing, food stipend, travel allowance to/from Tampa, FL, and a travel allowance to present their research at a national conference.

Three projects:

  1. Understanding hurricane evacuation behavior using social connections during Hurricane Matthew
  2. Impacts from sea level rise from an Urban/Environmental perspective
  3. Changing the Conversation about Climate Change in the Tampa Bay Region
