Elizabeth Agee, Environmental Engineering PhD Student, works to install sensors in the Amazon Rainforest outside of Santarém, Brazil on October 31, 2018. Agee is part of CEE Professor Valeriy Ivanov’s research group, who aims to collect water flow data from the trees to build a model that will help us gain an understanding of our push and pull on the region, and how it potentially affects the world’s climate.
