Educating students has been important feature of research activities in the NGA.
Check the Education portion of this websites for developing programs for K-12 students.
Though the NSF’s Research Experience for Undergraduates program, the NGA LTER will be offering REU positions at both UAF and WWU. More information on these will be posted as it becomes available.
Over the years, field activities in the NGA have provided research opportunities and data to numerous graduate students. With several cruises a year, there is plenty of work to be done. Additionally, the targeted research of the GLOBEC years provided subjects and data for theses and dissertations.
