Abstract

Undergraduate and graduate engineering and geology students investigate water storage and water yield from the Andean Puna, and design and construct downstream irrigation canals in the agrarian highland community of Zurite, Perú. This 2-year project, funded by Geoscientists Without Borders (GWB) relies on students to design research objectives, conduct hydrogeological field research, and produce tangible results, such as over 2 km. of irrigation canals, that benefit the community of Zurite.
