Missouri S&T is one of nine institutions in a research consortium that received a five-year $20 million grant from the National Science Foundation to study climate variability and its potential agricultural, ecological and social impacts in Missouri.

“The Missouri Transect: Climate, Plants and Community” received funding from the Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR), a National Science Foundation program to support research; education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM); and workforce development.

Joel Burken, professor of environmental engineering and director of the Environmental Research Center, will lead the project at Missouri S&T.
