Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors Research Frontiers Workshop, July 31 - August 3, 1999 at Pennsylvania State University

Project: Research project

Project Details


9904946 Cannon This is an award to support conduct of a workshop by the Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors to discuss recommendations that emerged from the Asilomar Research Frontiers Conference in 1998 as a basis for identification of research needs to address topics that address topics that address foreseeable environmental issues. Major topics to be addressed include the potential for contributions by environmental engineers toward achievement of a sustainable environment, applicability of advances in molecular level procedures in the biological and chemical sciences that can be applied toward addressing significant environmental problems at scales ranging from global/continental to meso/microcosmal. A final workshop topic will address advances in process technologies that can be applied to address restoration and maintenance of acceptable levels of environmental quality. The product of this conference is expected to be used in guiding the conduct of the Environmental Engineering and the Environmental Technology elements of the Environmental and Ocean Systems Program in the Engineering Directorate's Division of Bioengineering and Environmental Systems. Results are also expected to assist in advancing the National Science Foundation's commitment to the core strategy of integrating research and education as articulated in its stragetic plan. ***
