WIESS Research

WIESS research has been funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) as well as state and local agencies. Undergraduate students often collaborate with faculty members to carry out research tasks and are listed as co-authors on publications. Results are published in national and international scientific journals and are also disseminated through regional and national scientific meetings.
