Aggies Create Realization

Dr. Ben Burger’s discovery and research of an ancient rock level helped to reveal high carbon dioxide levels in rocks. His research has helped to set safer climate parameters based on the information gleaned from our past. Just like Burger, faculty across the USU statewide system conduct research that has a global impact.

USU Associate Professor David Rosenberg and Ayman Alafifi, a water resources engineer at Brown and Caldwell, have developed an innovative computer model that helps water and wetland managers make better, data-based decisions. Their work was recently published in the journal, Environmental Modelling and Software. The study is part of a multi-year research effort focused on creating more effective habitat management tools. At a place where conventional wisdom is challenged and reimagined constantly, USU faculty researchers are engaging in fields of study the world can’t live without.
