BESS GSA is an interdisciplinary group of graduate students at Cornell University with a common interest in environmental sciences. Cornell has a strong tradition of promoting research in environmental science and biogeochemistry since the 1960s, and our graduate group has been active since 1996. Our GSA coordinates some of its activities with the Cornell Program in Cross Scale Biogeochemistry and Climate (CSBC), but we welcome students from all disciplines. Together, our group hosts graduate student retreats, research mini-symposia, the BESS seminar series, the GSA invited speaker, GSA meetings, skills/grant review workshops for several small grants programs and social events.
