Research

Departments

Because of its multidisciplinary nature, research and educational activities that relate to the environment are integral to the mission of many departments, schools, and colleges at the University of Connecticut.

Scholarly activities in environmental sciences and engineering are diverse at the University of Connecticut, as might be expected from a research university that is both a land-grant and sea-grant institution.  Indeed, affiliated faculty members have academic homes in over 25 different Departments and a number of Programs, Institutes, or Centers have missions that relate to the environment as well.  In depth descriptions of the mission and activities of administrative units at UConn with an environmental focus provide insight to the varied opportunities to advance research and education that relates to understanding and protecting the environment for a sustainable future (see Departments and Centers & Institutes).

Hereafter, we highlight selected research projects by CESE faculty and graduate students by presenting brief abstracts of projects and writing them in a non-technical way to facilitate interdisciplinary communication (see Projects).

Because the publication record of the 80 Affiliated Faculty in CESE is quite large, we only highlight the last five years of publications by those faculty members (i.e., 12 Center Faculty Members) whose appointments are directly administered by the Center (see Publications).

Numerous seminars in environmental sciences and engineering are held each semester at UConn.  Some are directly supported by CESE and others are supported by various programs, departments, and colleges across the university.  To facilitate announcement of these activities to the community at large, we provide a portal to research seminars from units at UConn with a significant environmental focus (see Seminars).

Publications

The environmental publication record of the  Affiliated Faculty members of CESE is voluminous. Consequently, we only highlight recent years of publication by Center Faculty – those whose appointments are directly administered by CESE  – or by professional staff. Publications are organized alphabetically. (Note that we only include publications for individuals during years for which they have been Center Faculty members).  Click here to download an electronic version .
