What We Do
We tackle complex, environmentally-related challenges to advance scientific understanding and improve technologies, systems, and regulatory processes using empowered staff, advanced computational tools and platforms, and well-equipped laboratories and field sites.
To transform energy and natural resource systems to be sustainable and resilient.
To create an environmentally sustainable world based on science, technology, economics, and social needs.
Control of Subsurface Systems
Deploy our geochemistry, geology, hydrology, microbiology, and computational expertise to enable technology innovation for sustainable energy development while addressing environmental remediation, waste disposal, and carbon sequestration changes.
Grow the engineering, ecology, hydrology, and computational expertise to develop decision-making tools and to enable technology innovation for development of new, sustainable hydropower and certification of existing hydropower.
Decision Support for Climate-Ecosystem Impacts
Build the science, environmental knowledge, decision-making tools, and computational expertise needed to deploy geospatial and other decision analysis tools to identify options for adapting to climate change.
