Honors program atmospheric sciences environmental studies marine sciences and mvb

have a 3.50 GPA in all courses for the major by the end of the junior year.

Students should apply to the SoMAS undergraduate director for permission to participate

Submit an outline of the proposed thesis research project to the SoMAS undergraduate director

but no later than the second week of classes in the last semester.

Prepare an honors thesis based on a research project

The written thesis must be submitted before the end of the semester in which the student is graduating.

The student will be given an oral examination in May on his or her research.

The awarding of honors requires the recommendation of this committee and recognizes superior performance in research and scholarly endeavors.

Honors ProgramAtmospheric Sciences, Environmental Studies, Marine Sciences and MVB


Internships during the year

Undergraduates interested in research and monitoring programs at Gateway National Recreation Area and Fire Island National Seashore should contact:

Patti Rafferty: [email protected] 631-687-4767

monitor vegetation, nekton and benthos in conjunction with salt marsh restoration

to evaluate the effect of nitrogen loading on salt marsh function

interested student to assist with preparation and/or analysis of sediment and vegetation samples.

Internships During the Year


Aquatic toxicology
Aquatic Toxicology programs at Gateway National Recreation Area and Fire Island National Seashore should contact:

  • Anne McElory

  • Internship available to help with routine lab maintenance (glassware cleaning, cataloging and clean-up) and fish culture (rearing, feeding, cleaning, water quality testing).

  • Depending on availability, student would also have the opportunity to occasionally help with experimental manipulations of fish embryos in the laboratory.

  • Help is generally needed during the morning 8:30-9:30 and afternoon 4:00-5:00 time windows.

  • This is not a paid position.


Environmental chemistry
Environmental Chemistry programs at Gateway National Recreation Area and Fire Island National Seashore should contact:

  • Robert Aller Lab (Environmental Chemistry)

    • explore “greening” our nitrate analysis - and using less porewater - by using nitrate reductase enzyme and the microplate reader instead of using the heavy metal Cadmium as the reductant for the analysis

    • This is obviously a project for a student with a strong interest in environmental chemistry, but the techniques exist (the methods have been developed elsewhere) so it shouldn't be a difficult project.


Internships
Internships programs at Gateway National Recreation Area and Fire Island National Seashore should contact:

  • These are the Internships that are on Blackboard

  • Look around the buildings at SoMAS

  • If you find a Professor who is doing work Similar to your interests then E-mail, Call, and VISIT THEM

  • Sometimes you need to be assertive and track them down
