Ohio State Director and Professor Awarded Fulbright U.S. Scholar Grant

W. Berry Lyons, director and professor for Ohio State’s School of Earth Sciences, is the recipient of a prestigious Fulbright U.S. Scholar Grant by the U.S. Department of State. Lyons will be affiliated with the National University of Ireland Galway’s Earth and Ocean Sciences program from January– June 2018.

During his time in Ireland, Lyons will be both researching and teaching. His research will involve the collection and analysis of stream and bog water from Galway and Mayo counties in West Ireland. He will analyze the samples to determine chemical weathering rates and provide new information in environmental management and natural resource assessment. He will teach a number of courses focusing primarily on Antarctic research and the climatic status of polar regions today.
