    The Earth and Space Research –Summer Institute is a four-week summer research experience where high school students engage in mentored research projects in the geosciences with tangible, externally-visible outcomes (e.g., educational blog posts, presentations at regional and national conferences, peer-reviewed publications). Students learn valuable data science skills (e.g. machine learning) in a supportive, inclusive environment.

    ESR-SI 2024 will be focused on three research topics:

    1. Antarctic Cryosphere and Climate The Weather
    2. Climate of Mount Baker
    3. Evaluation of Solar Reflectance Geoengineering Interventions

    Students will be mentored in a supportive and inclusive learning environment at ESR by Dr. Michael Town. They will be exposed to a mixture of state-of-the-art data analysis and machine learning (Python, Pandas, and Google Earth Engine), satellite data (e.g. Sentinel-2, LANDSAT-8), other weather and climate data products (e.g. ERA5). The students will get the opportunity to interact with and learn from other professional scientists at ESR and the University of Washington. Interested students will also participate in a day of field work in the Mt. Baker National Recreation Area.
