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
A NOAA-supported national center of expertise in the fields of coastal hydrography and advanced coastal ocean mapping that fosters a new generation of hydrographers and ocean mapping scientists and develops and evaluates a wide range of state-of-the-art hydrographic and ocean mapping technologies and applications
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.
