Land, Air, Water Resources & Environmental Engineering (LAWREE) scientists apply their biological and engineering expertise in fundamental research of global food industry problems.
Using the tools of observational research and testing, resource management, and technology development, LAWREE scientists investigate real-world phenomena related to hydrologic processes from the field level to watersheds covering large geographical regions.
Other LAWREE researchers contribute to advancements in erosion prediction technology through their continuous testing and improvement of the Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) model. In addition, they develop improved methods for irrigation management, water treatment in natural systems, and agricultural systems analysis.
LAWREE scientists also research confined-animal operations, aquaculture, and natural resource systems in order to reduce the environmental impacts of managed biological systems.
Biological systems engineering researchers are also exploring ways to effectively utilize natural treatment systems for wastewater. In addition, they are developing for application, agricultural system models that predict the effects of climate change on agricultural products in order to promote economically sound and environment-friendly management decisions.
