Honorees join the roster and are celebrated through a Wall of Honor in Nancy Nicholas' Hall, as well as through this interactive page on SoHE's main website.
Water Vapor Data Visualization AppThis data visualization tool helps students understand the water cycle and the role of water vapor. Students can interact with the website to observe how insolation changes based on latitude and day of the year. Students can also examine real data from the AOS department at the UW to see how sea surface temperatures, vegetation cover, evaporation and rainfall changed throughout the year.
Dairyland Initiative Web SiteThe Dairyland Initiative is an information center and building plan assessment program that draws on dairy animal health, production, and behavior research combined with years of field experience in housing design.
Center for Tobacco Research and Intervention Games and Quitting AppThe Center for Tobacco Research and Intervention team developed a study to measure cravings that users experienced before and after playing a game on a smartphone. This app tracked how long the game was played and set limits on the amount of time between play sessions in accordance with study parameters.
