The second annual 3-Minute Thesis (3MT) final competition features 13 graduate-student finalists presenting their projects on Thursday evening, April 23, in the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center, Wells Fargo Auditorium.

Ecohydrology involves understanding not just water cycles and natural systems, but the environmental and ecological effects from humans' systems for moving and using water.
