The former head of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department has served as the interim dean of EREP since July.
Ilya Tsvankin, professor of geophysics at Colorado School of Mines, is the winner of the 2020 Outstanding Educator Award from SEG.
"A critical challenge facing the practical implementation of fusion power is the effective and safe management of tritium," said Mines' Colin Wolden, lead investigator on the new $1.4 million ARPA-E project with Idaho National Laboratory.
“The core of the existing relationship between Mines and NREL is materials science for renewable energy," said Ryan M. Richards, professor of chemistry and the Mines lead of Nexus. "Through this seed funding, we were able to create new connections from Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Petroleum Engineering, Civil Engineering."
In findings published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academies of Science, Mines' Danica Roth and colleagues quantitatively showed – for the first time – just how the post-wildfire landscape can impact how sediment moves downslope.
A Mines alumnus, Squier was recognized for his “seminal contributions to ultrafast optical technology, including the first ultrafast Ti:sapphire regenerative amplifier," among other accomplishments.
Requiring 1,500 feet between oil and gas operations and buildings or waterways would have minimal impacts on oil and gas availability, according to a new study from the University of Colorado Boulder
Researchers believe the de-carbonization of the steel industry can be achieved by connecting ironmaking to renewable electric power through electrolytically produced hydrogen.
Colorado School of Mines Professor Ryan M. Richards has been named a VIPEr Fellow in an innovative study to develop, test and refine a flexible, foundation-level inorganic chemistry course. As one of
Mines students used WhatsApp and Zoom to connect with small-scale gold miners in Colombia this summer and collaboratively design solutions for the issues most important to their rural mining communities.
