UM Geosciences Program Awarded $1.4M for Mountain Watershed Research

Hilary Martens

As mountain watersheds store and release water, the Earth’s shape changes ever so subtly. The University of Montana Department of Geosciences now can track those changes by GPS, thanks to a $1.4 million cut of a multi-institutional collaborative award from the National Science Foundation. The total value of the award, part of the NSF’s Frontier Research in Earth Sciences program, is $2.43 million.
