Clifford Riebe is an assistant professor in UW's Geology Department and helped author the study.</p><p>The report says certain kinds of riverbeds help salmon spawning and since trout and salmon are closely related Riebe says managers in both areas could use the data to grow fish populations.</p> Mon, 17 Mar 2014 14:15:38 +0000 Jordan Giese 55432 at http://wyomingpublicradio.net Salmon Research In The Northwest Could Help Wyoming Fish Workshop aims to help Wyoming scientists communicate with the rest of us http://wyomingpublicradio.net/post/workshop-aims-help-wyoming-scientists-communicate-rest-us <p>Science can be fascinating, even to non-scientists. But when experts use a lot of industry jargon to explain their research, it can be hard to understand.</p><p>Now that funding for research is harder to come by, scientists need to do more to win over the public’s hearts and minds to back their work. The National Science Foundation will be hosting a workshop at the University of Wyoming to help scientists, engineers and other academics to communicate with the rest of us about their research.</p><p>(fans blowing)</p> Fri, 30 Aug 2013 22:22:11 +0000 Rebecca Martinez 46200 at http://wyomingpublicradio.net Workshop aims to help Wyoming scientists communicate with the rest of us UW engineering professor receives National Science Foundation’s CAREER award http://wyomingpublicradio.net/post/uw-engineering-professor-receives-national-science-foundation-s-career-award <p>The National Science Foundation recently awarded University of Wyoming assistant professor John Oakey its prestigious Faculty Early Career Development Award.&nbsp; Oakey, a chemical and petroleum engineer, will receive $400,000 to fund a project that will potentially make tissue regeneration experiments much faster, especially when studying diseases such as osteoarthritis.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 30 Jul 2013 12:11:34 +0000 Melodie Edwards 44525 at http://wyomingpublicradio.net UW engineering professor receives National Science Foundation’s CAREER award UW’s School of Energy Resources working to forge research relationship with Saudi Arabia http://wyomingpublicradio.net/post/uw-s-school-energy-resources-working-forge-research-relationship-saudi-arabia <p>The University of Wyoming School of Energy Resources is working to forge a relationship with Saudi Arabia’s national oil and gas company, Saudi Aramco, and King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals. Saudi Aramco is the biggest oil and gas company in the world and invests heavily in research and development. SER Director, Mark Northam, just returned from a trip to Saudi Arabia. He says Wyoming and Saudi Arabia face similar challenges when it comes to unconventional reservoirs and water shortages, and he says they would both benefit by sharing their resources.</p> Wed, 17 Apr 2013 22:17:30 +0000 Irina Zhorov 39480 at http://wyomingpublicradio.net UW’s School of Energy Resources working to forge research relationship with Saudi Arabia
