Remediation, Reclamation and Restoration

We focus on developing science-based remediation, reclamation and restoration methods to transform such impacted lands into productive ecosystems.

Hazardous pollution is not distributed uniformly across the landscape, but rather frequently localized in “hot spots” of industrial activity like mining, organic solvent usage, or leaking underground storage tanks. Even in the absence of contamination, landscapes (like ranchland or agricultural land) can be degraded by inappropriate management practices.
