UVM Students Offer Real-World Climate Recommendations to Vermont Town
As part of an upper-level seminar in the Department of Geography and Geosciences. and under the leadership of their professor, Lesley-Ann Dupigny-Giroux, Ph.D., the students worked in collaboration with town, state, and federal agencies this past fall to come up with a plan to aid Underhill in natural-hazard mitigation in the face of our changing climate. With environmental challenges such as extreme drought, destructive flooding, and massive storms becoming more frequent, this type of class couldn’t be timelier.
