Baylor Geology is fortunate to have multiple opportunities for interdisciplinary research involving groundwater and wastewater systems, through its connection with the Center for Reservoir and Aquatic Systems Research (link: CRASR) and The Interdisciplinary Graduate program in Ecological, Earth and Environmental Sciences (link: TIEEES). Students have opportunities to interact with faculty in Biology, Chemistry, and Environmental Sciences.
