About El Dia

The combined symposium of El Día del Agua y La Atmósfera (formerly AIR, Atmospheric Interdisciplinary Research) is one of the hallmark events held during EarthWeek, a showcase of research for students enrolled in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and the School of Natural Resources and the Environment.

At the El Día del Agua y La Atmósfera conference, students showcase their research through oral and poster presentations. The day also includes a continental breakfast, light buffet lunch, luncheon speaker, afternoon keynote address, announcement of student awards, and presentation of the coveted AquaMan/AquaWoman trophies to the most outstanding faculty instructors. 

The day ends with a reception or pub celebration for sponsors, attendees, and student presenters hosted by the department's student association.
