Prior Research


RACC - Research on Adaptation to Climate Change
In the Lake Champlain Basin

Research on Adaptation to Climate Change that employs state of the art sensor technology in the watershed and Lake, complex systems modeling, integration of models and work with stakeholders to predict future climate scenarios for the Basin.

NEWRnet - North East Water Resouces Network

The North East Water Resouces Network allows us to collaborate with Rhode Island and Delaware EPSCoR programs to stream data in real time from sensors in the Lake and watershed for use by policy maker and experimental economics studies to determine how best to present these large data sets to stakeholders.

C2 Vermont

In 2011, Vermont EPSCoR was awarded a National Science Foundation EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Improvement Program: Inter-Campus and Intra-Campus Cyber Connectivity (RII C2) grant. The C2 project connected over 100 institutions to Internet2. This helped institutions integrate broadband technologies into their activities and programs.

CSYS: Complex Systems Modeling for Environmental Problem Solving Complex System

By bringing together natural scientists, engineers, and modelers, CSYS combines the observations and measurments collected by those working in the field with new mathematical techniques to explore how one pattern is dependent on another.

The CSYS group has built a new capacity in the State of Vermont in Complex Systems computation and modeling. The group brings a complex systems approach to some long standing environmental problems that are of importance to the State and the Region. Through the use of multiple and varied modeling approaches, insights and predictions that have not previously been possible are obtained.

NECC: North East Cyberinfrastructure Consortium

The North East Cyberinfrastructure Consortium (NECC) is a consortium of five states that are collaborating on building cyberinfrastructure in the NE region. The consortium is not formally affiliated with NSF EPSCoR or the NIH IDeA. The NECC states have a collaborative award from NSF EPSCoR (Track-2) for specific fiber, research, and workforce development and diversity programs. The NECC states have a coordinated set of supplements to INBRE and COBRE grants from NIH NCRR to further build cyberinfrastructure in the region. These supplement cover fiber, research, electronics, and training in cyber-tools and education outreach in the region. Additional information about the program can be found at: http://www.necyberconsortium.org/

NECC Data: Metagenomes of algal blooms in the north east - Blue-green algal bloom samples taken from freshwater lakes and ponds.


iRWE: Integrated Research on Water in the Environment

Environmental, water-related problems are innately complex and best solved when the skills of many disciplines are applied in unison. Integrated Research on Water in the Environment (IRWE) is a closely interacting, coordinated but diverse group of faculty and student researchers at the University of Vermont who share interests in water.
