Eric Leonard Awarded $110,866 NSF Grant
Colorado College Geology Professor Eric Leonard has been awarded $110,866 from the National Science Foundation. The award is part of a collaborative grant with State University of New York at Geneseo to develop an understanding of paleoclimates associated with past glaciation of the Rocky Mountains. The results may also provide insight into the reliability of existing climate model predictions of future precipitation changes in the Rocky Mountain region, an area where demand for limited water resources continues to grow. Four to six CC undergraduates will conduct research as part of this grant.
