Jackson School faculty, researchers and students made headlines in over 100 news outlets across the globe from fall 2015 to summer 2016. From internationally reaching publications such as The New York Times and the BBC, to local Texas news sources like KUT, the Austin American Statesman and the Houston Chronicle, news from the Jackson School was shared with the community and the world at large.

Research discoveries dominated coverage. But reporters also turned to experts in the Jackson School to provide insight on natural disasters, the environment, energy issues and other vitally important and timely subjects.

“Wind is powerful but it’s slow…On Mars these
craters have been exposed to the surface for
3 billion years so there’s a lot of time to do that
work and to get that material out of there in a
way that we’ve never really seen on Earth.”
–Mackenzie Day
Ph.D. Student, April 2016, Scientific American

“Our study provides evidence that major

Former Postdoctoral Researcher, April 2016, CBS News
