Areas of ecosystems research address:
- how air pollution may effect ecosystems;
- protection of natural water resources, including bodies of water as well as their supporting watersheds;
- development of new strategies for managing watersheds and wastewater while reducing water-related energy demands; and
- establishing innovative solutions to address the problem of nutrient pollution in the Nation’s air, water and land.
