Welcome to Science Atlantic Environment! We are an interdisciplinary group that meets once per year in March to hear about exciting research being done by undergraduate and graduate students across all the Science Atlantic member institutions.

Because “Environment” encompasses such a broad scope, we always have an exciting diversity of topics and subject areas covering the full spectrum of social sciences to natural life sciences, with the common thread being the passion for studying the environment and aiming for solutions for environmental problems.
