UC Davis Students win Bay-Delta Science Conference Student Presentation Awards
UC Davis Students Rachel Wigginton and Alison Whipple took first-place honors in the 2016 Bay-Delta Science Conference Student Presentation Awards.
From the Delta Stewardship Council Delta Science Program:
The 2016 Bay-Delta Science Conference, which took place in November of 2016, was a forum for presenting technical analyses and results relevant to the Delta Science Program’s mission of providing science-based information for water and environmental decision-making in the Bay-Delta system.
Students contribute enormously to Bay-Delta research studies and communication. As in previous conferences, numerous students participated in the student competition.
