Environment and Water

These impacts are made possible through public and private investments, legislator support, multi-institutional partnerships, and the dedication of faculty and student scholars. 

Below, we showcase a fraction of our world-class research in the area of environment and water. You can also subscribe to our DISCOVER research newsletter to stay abreast of new developments in ACES research.
