Dr. Sarah Evans and GES students explore climate change and permafrost, funded by a new NSF grant!

From Appalachian Today:  Appalachian State University’s Dr. Sarah Evans and five undergraduate students will spend the next three summers (2022–24) studying water saturation patterns in thawing permafrost on Alaska’s North Slope, with an aim of understanding how these patterns vary in a changing climate. Their research is funded by a nearly $690,000 National Science Foundation (NSF) grant awarded to Evans and her colleagues at partner institutions Idaho State University and the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research. Evans, an assistant professor in App State’s Department of Geological and Environmental Sciences (GES), received $280,000 of the total awarded funding.
