Dean Kate Miller
 Dear Colleagues,

Congratulations to Renyi Zhang who has just been appointed as a University Distinguished Professor. This is among the highest honors awarded to Texas A&M faculty members. He joins a select group of more than 70 current faculty members who hold this title, including our own Jerry North, Bob Duce, and Worth Nowlin. 


Last week, the university awarded the college $2 million as one-time seed funding towards establishing a Geospatial Information and Technology Center where researchers from across the campus will work together. The funds will be used to purchase infrastructure such as a geospatial computing system (cloud, storage, computation, communication, and geovisualization equipment and software). These funds will support the university-wide effort to establish a center led by Michael Bishop in Geography. This effort has already resulted in establishment of an interdisciplinary research program and the permission to develop a proposal for a Board of Regents approved center with support from faculty in numerous departments, colleges, research centers, institutes and the VPR's office. We anticipate that this center will support a variety of multidisciplinary research efforts on campus, as geospatial technology solutions, environmental and Earth science applications are required by many other scientists and engineers.


As part of our efforts to significantly advance research and instructional excellence in fields related to scientific ocean drilling, the college will launch a search for up to four faculty members who will complement and expand existing university-wide strengths in scientific ocean drilling, especially through the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP). A search committee, headed by Jack Baldauf has been formed. Members include representatives from each academic department and IODP. Depending on academic expertise, successful candidates will be appointed as a tenured or tenure-track faculty member in any of our academic departments with the option of joint appointments as appropriate.  


The academic advisors in our college, led by Roxanna Russell, have come up with an innovative approach to help our undergraduate majors meet a new state requirement to file a degree plan to chart their progress to graduation. The advisors are now leading a series of small group sessions for students by meeting in computer labs to provide instruction on how to navigate the software on Howdy. It has been a unique opportunity to work one-on-one with students and to ensure that they are moving efficiently through their degree plans. Eventually, departments will be able to use data mined from the students' plans to reliably plan course offerings. Our goal is to be 100 percent compliant with the law by May 1.


March 3-7 is Staff Appreciation Week at Texas A&M University. I ask that you join me in recognizing our outstanding staff members by stopping to thank them for their work. Their team effort is central to the successful operation of our college. In addition to offering personal thanks, the Dean's Office is sponsoring breakfast for staff at various sites around the college on March 6.


Next up is spring break. I hope you enjoy the time off, and come back energized to finish the semester.

New Graduate Fellowships at TAMUG
I am pleased to announce a new graduate-student funding initiative that will help establish stronger bonds between graduate faculty and students across a number of academic units in Galveston and College Station. The competitive fellowship program recrui talented new graduate student, with a focus on merit and diversity, to work under the direction of TAMUG faculty. All graduate students undertaking a research-based program (thesis option) are eligible, either at TAMUG or Texas A&M in College Station.

We have secured permanent funding for six, two-year fellowships, which will be rolled out over the next two years, with three offered in fall 2014 and three in fall 2015.

I have to personally thank Karen Butler-Perry for helping this initiative with tuition funds for any students that may be awarded such fellowships in the next two years. Her effort will greatly enhance our research collaborations across the two campuses and on behalf of the students and faculty, I thank her for her support.

Details of eligibility and guidelines for nominations and preparation of application dossiers can be found at the following on the TAMUG website.

Geoscience Senators


Congratulations to junior Environmental Studies students Elora Arana and Kaitlyn Simpson

who were elected by geosciences students to represent them in the 67th Legislature of the Texas A&M Student Senate. Both students are leaders within the college and campus and plan to increase geosciences student participation on campus affairs. If students have an issue that they would like brought to the senate, please email:


The Student Geosciences' Council hosted a very successful Geosciences Career Fair in the the MSC Feb. 10. The story is on the College of Geosciences news site.


Jessica Wang, senior meteorology major, was selected by the College of Geosciences 

to receive the George Bush Presidential Library Foundation Undergraduate Student 

Travel Grant for $250.00. This award provides educational opportunities to Texas
A&M students in support of travel to conferences, research projects, study, or
internships in the United States and abroad. Jessica used the grant to travel to the
AMS Student Conference earlier in February. 

Dr. Yuan Wang, a former graduate student in ATMO, was recently awarded the first prize of the 2014 COAA-Springer Dissertation Award at AMS. He completed his dissertation under Dr. Renyi Zhang (ATMO) in August 2013 and is  a post-doc fellow at the NASA-Jet Propulsion Laboratory. During his doctoral research at Texas A&M, Wang published 11 papers in Nature Communications, Nature Climate Change, Journal of Geophysical Research, Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, and Atmospheric Environment, including five first author articles. His research produced a major breakthrough on the assessment of the climatic impacts of Asian air pollution and was picked up by media outlets worldwide, including Smithsonian Online, Science Daily, Wired, Earthweek, Discovery News, and Futurity. The COAA-Springer Dissertation Award includes a cash award of 500 euros and a contract for publication of his dissertation.




Dr. Mark Lemmon (ATMO) is on THE team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory that used the Mars Curiosity cameras to image

Earth from Mars in the evening twilight sky. 


The skull of an infant, 12,650 years old, indicates that Native Americans originated from a single mass migration from Asia rather than additional sporadic ingress from Europe and Polynesia. Although the grave was found in 1968, more advanced methods in DNA analysis gave Dr. Michael R. Waters (ANTH/GEOG) and other researchers the tools they needed to perform a complete genome sequence. The results were published in Nature and the news spread worldwide. An article in the Chronicle of Higher Education refers to Dr. Waters as the "grandmaster" of the new movement "archeology of archeology," which refers to researchers returning to old sites armed with news tools of investigation. 

Meteorology as an undergraduate major and the Texas Aggie Stormchasers were featured in the first issue of the Office of Admissions magazine Aggie Bound. The article quoted Dr. Don Conlee (ATMO) on the merits of majoring in meteorology.

Reisinger is a master of the technique, called "Gyotaku" (Japanese for "fish rubbing"), which is an art form used by Japanese anglers to document their catch. The course is part of the curriculum for the Texas Coastal Naturalist program.


Texas Sea Grant's Floating Classroom Program (FCP) on board R/V Karma was coordinated by

Russ Miget (TXSG) who taught hundreds of Willacy County students about marine life, Feb. 10-21 in Port Mansfield.
