UF in Austria is a new program in collaboration with University of Alabama and University of Innsbruck. This program aims to provide students with exposure to diverse regions of Europe while exploring the divergence of water science, engineering and policy.

Students will be exposed to Paleohydrology, Glaciology and, Water Law-Policy-Economics. Students will be introduced to the feedback between economic activities and ecosystem resources as well as management policies that protect the long-term viability of both.

Additionally, students will examine climatic variability and the impact on Alpine glaciers, including a paleo perspective through the use of tree ring data. Students will also be introduced to Austrian and German culture through guided tours to historical sites, learning about figures such as King Ludwig II, Otzi the Iceman and Tirolean History.

Activities include multiple field labs and cultural excursions to: Stubaier Glacier, Neuschwanstein Castle, Herrenchiemssee Palace, and Bolzano (Italy) while residing in both Innsbruck, Austria and Munich, Germany.
