Welcome to the Institute for Coastal and Water Research (ICaWR).
ICaWR houses faculty of diverse expertise in the areas of coastal and water resources with the goal of addressing complex linkages between terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems in an ever-changing environment. The structure of ICaWR promotes multidisciplinary collaboration and we invite interested partners from across the country to interact with us. Research expertise in ICaWR encompasses such pressing environmental concerns as:
- global climate change and sea-level rise,
- restoration of coastal ecosystems,
- environmental modeling,
- water management, and
- sustainability of habitats and communities.
