|GRASP: Geoscience Research at Storm Peak Laboratory|
Geoscience Research at Storm Peak (GRASP) is a year-long program providing exceptional field research experiences for a diverse group of undergraduate students. GRASP is funded by the National Science Foundation’s Opportunity for Enhancing Diversity in GeoScience Program, whose mission is to recruit and retain students from underrepresented groups within the geosciences. Geoscience majors include atmospheric science, hydrology, geography, geology, meteorology, and environmental science.
Students selected to participate in the GRASP program are from four institutions: Howard University, Tennessee State University, Colorado State University at Pueblo, and the University of Nevada, Reno. The students initially meet at DRI's Storm Peak Laboratory, a unique facility located on the summit of Mt. Werner near Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Storm Peak Laboratory provides an ideal location for hands-on experiences in atmospheric science with a high-elevation location, exceptional instrumentation, and a staff of knowledgeable scientists and educators.
