Water quality effects of short-rotation pine management for bioenergy feedstocks in the southeastern United States
Capabilities & Research Areas
Water-energy research challenges include the need to 1) understand and predict environmental responses to energy alternatives (e.g., hydropower, fossil fuel, biofuel and nuclear) , 2) develop scientifically sound technologies that can enhance energy security and minimize environmental impacts, and 3) provide society and stakeholders the information and tools necessary to inform policy and decision-making. Research strengths of the group are its capabilities in water resource evaluation and ecological restoration, which includes long-term evaluations of field sites, the use of a 8000 square foot Aquatic Ecology Laboratory, and unique national level aquatic resource geospatial databases and modeling tools.
