Talk to most University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) and Desert Research Institute (DRI) faculty about their research and it does not take long for them to mention how important graduate students are to their programs. They will tell you that their students are extremely bright, hard working, and provide incredibly productive insights to the research projects on which they work. These attributes clearly apply to those students who have conducted their graduate research in the Lake Tahoe Basin. In the 2008 Tahoe Summit report, we have summarized the research contributions of these “Tahoe students,” and provide the reader an overview of their research findings, identify their graduate advisor and degree program, and how their graduate experience benefited them in their career development.
