Conducts applied environmental science and engineering research in partnership with industry, communities, federal agencies, and international organizations on ares of importance to NH and New England communities, the private sector, and the nation
Using sophisticated observational systems and modeling tools, conducts research focused on understanding fundamental properties of the atmosphere and how they have been, and will continue to be, affected by human activities
Interdisciplinary center for research, development and evaluation for ocean renewable energy systems, training the next generation of engineers, scientists and policy makers for advancing this new industry, and providing innovation and commercialization support for commercial developers of “hydrokinetic” energy systems
A NOAA-supported national center of expertise to foster a new generation of hydrographers and ocean mapping scientists and develop and evaluate a wide range of state-of-the-art hydrographic and ocean mapping technologies and applications
aka Center for Clean and Renewable Energy Research
Provides organizational cohesion and enhances public recognition of the role of chemical engineering in the area of alternative/renewable energy research
At UNH, research in engineering and the physical sciences explores phenomena from the almost imperceptible subatomic and ‘nano’ scales to the global scale and beyond. Studies of atoms and molecules deepen our understanding of them and point to new applications in product design and manufacturing. Learning about materials and processes involved in roads and bridges, robotics, turbulent flow in air and water, and how to contain, clean up, and prevent damage to rivers and oceans contributes to improved built and natural environments in New Hampshire and elsewhere.
