Climate+ 2022

The Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions and Duke University Energy Initiative have teamed up with the Rhodes Information Initiative at Duke to introduce a new vertical within the Data+ program, a full-time, ten-week summer research experience for Duke students of all class years and majors.

Climate+ will engage small teams of undergraduates and graduate students in climate-related, data-driven research projects focused on diverse topics, including: electricity consumption, wetland carbon emissions, climate change’s impacts on river and ocean ecosystems, and the use of remote sensing data to inform climate strategies.

In addition to developing new skills while working on their projects, Climate+ team members will have opportunities to learn from guest experts on data science, other project teams, and climate, environment, and energy researchers and practitioners. Participants receive a $5,000 stipend to arrange housing and travel.
