The Center's work is focused in the areas of environmental resource management and protection-- including natural ecosystems, fisheries management, engineering natural systems, watershed resource management, and the emerging research areas of climatic effects on endangered species; environmental hazards -- including fate and transport of contaminants, pesticides research, water and wastewater treatment, and advanced oxidation processes, and the developing areas of emerging pathogens, nanoparticles, microconstituents; and environmental informatics -- including GIS applications and the emerging research area of rainfall forecasting using satellite data. The Center depends on its talented core faculty and associate faculty to maximize its expertise in these areas to bring quality water-related research to the community and the state. Below are links to information on these research topics, related projects and faculty who work in these areas.
