  • Accessible Earth is a study abroad program based in Orvieto Italy, designed as a capstone experience for Geoscience students. This course is recognized in the Department of Geosciences at University of Arizona as an alternative to Geology field camp focusing more on computational aspects of Geoscience and Geodesy/Remote Sensing technologies.
  • US-China Collaboration on Landslide Research and Student Training is an International Research Experience for Students (IRES) program hosted by the University of Houston and the China University of Geosciences (Wuhan) in China. The 8-week IRES program will provide support for 6 U.S. students (two graduates and four undergraduates) to conduct advanced landslide research in the Three Gorges area in China during the summer.
