Dr. Cody Scott and Dr. James Ward

In February, ASU received an additional $75,000 gift from the Shell Oil Exploration and Production Company to continue a rangeland reclamation research project co-directed by Dr. Cody Scott of the agriculture faculty and Dr. James Ward of the geology faculty.

Initially funded by a $116,500 gift from Shell in March 2015, the project is designed to develop research and strategies for reclaiming West Texas rangelands damaged by both salt water spillage and contaminated shallow aquifers as a result of oil field operations.
