MaryBridget Horvath ’24 spent her summer tracking the effects of water flow from the melting of frozen ground to lakes and other bodies of water in Alaska through an internship with the Polaris Project.
“You can think about any major climate article and they’re going to mention the ice caps are melting and other effects of climate change on the Arctic because it’s such a novel environment,” says Horvath. “To be able to do research on the Arctic is really fascinating to me.”
