 The aim of this REU Program is to provide undergraduate students with eight weeks of research experiences in different aspects of water resources. The students will understand the significance of their research and its impact on current management practices and decisions, through extension activities. During this Program, the students are distributed across Florida, at the main campus in Gainesville, at the UF/IFAS Citrus Research and Education Center (CREC) in Lake Alfred, and at the UF/IFAS Tropical Research and Education Center (TREC) in Homestead.
