We study the interactions between the atmosphere and natural and agricultural ecosystems, and examine how that interaction influences our water resources, food production and society.
We study ecosystems and the plants and animals who thrive or flounder there, with a focus on making discoveries that inform natural resource management decisions.
We work to understand and solve environmental challenges worldwide and remediate ecosystems that have been degraded, damaged or contaminated.
We use spatial technologies, such as GIS, to study and understand complex environmental and societal issues and the spatial patterns and processes underlying them.
We work to sustain high quality water supplies, resolve conflicts among users, and restore water quality when it has been degraded, damaged or contaminated from human activity or natural agents.
