McIntosh recently spoke with Arizona Public Media's Arizona 360 host and producer, Lorraine Rivera, about nationwide groundwater supplies falling short of previous estimates. She explained that recent findings show the availability of fresh groundwater resources is about half of what was estimated in earlier studies and that drilling deeper wells may not be a good long-t...

Congratulations to Antonio Meira, HAS doctoral student, who was recently elected to the American Geophysical Union's Student-Early Career Leadership Council! Antonio will begin his membership on the Student Council in January 2019.
The AGU created this council of students and early career scientists to represent a large percentage of the AGU membership with the knowledge that they would bring a forward-looking perspective to the Council and to the AGU. These representatives serve as advocates to their peers from the organization and to the organization from their peers. The Council's three dis... Read More
