How do climate change, population change and economic factors affect water resources in Panama? Seven students from a variety of disciplines at UAH are spending two weeks in Panama doing cross-disciplinary field research on sustainability and climate change to help answer that question. The students arrived Sunday, June 8, escorted by UAH Earth Systems Science Center Research Associate Eric Anderson. On Thursday, June 12, Dr. Rob Griffin, assistant professor of atmospheric science, and Dr. Kyle Knight, assistant professor of sociology, will join them. &quot;We'll be going to a couple of small communities in the highlands,&quot; says Dr. Griffin, who will be on his fifth trip to Panama. The communities are Santa Fe and San Francisco, which are in the Santa Maria Watershed area that will be studied by the research team.
