2014 Hubbard Brook

Please note that the annual meeting falls early for most Research Experience for Undergraduate or Teachers (REU/RET) projects*, so presentations given during the HB meeting presentations may be works in progress.  Over the course of the summer, such participants continue their projects and refine analyses for the HB REU/RET Conference on Aug. 5, 2014.  Those later presentations are fpictured below, with a link beneath it to the earlier presentation.  Graduate students and PIs generally discuss projects that are further along in development, perhaps over multiple seasons.  Visit here for more updates!  Also note:  Most presentations are uploaded to Slideshare and should play across browsers and devices. Those with intensive animations are hosted at Slideboom and, sadly, are only viewable on flash supported devices.  Viewers using iphone or ipads can read the 'transcripts' and send themselves a link to the presentation to view from a different device.
