What's New at SNR
Agricultural crops can wither in a flash when the days turn hot, the air dries, the rain stops and moisture evaporates quickly from the soil. A new early warning system developed by two nationally recognized centers at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, along with the U.S. Geological Survey, can help alert stakeholders as drought begins.
Convection this week has brought welcome moisture to areas east and south of Grand Island, as several complexes developed on a daily basis from June 24 to 26. Unfortunately, a substantial portion of northern and western Nebraska missed out on these events and a substantial increase in abnormally dry conditions is depicted on this week's Drought Monitor (Figure 1). Rainfall reported after 7 a.m. on June 27 will be incorporated in next week's edition.
SNR student Mike True gives a first-person account of his study abroad experience to Botswana this summer. "What I expected to learn was somewhat fulfilled, yet it was the unexpected aspects of the trip that will forever be inscribed into my memory and, most importantly, my soul."
Today in Hardin Hall
There are no events today in Hardin Hall.
I like my internship because I get to teach campers life skills and I get to be outside all day.
