Environmental Dynamics and GeoEcology Institute

Global climate and environmental change, and the resulting degradation of ecosystems, pose some of the most vexing issues facing society today. While there is consensus among scientists that such change is happening, the coordinated interdisciplinary approach that would point toward solutions remains controversial in some circles. UCR’s College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences (CNAS) will be working towards building a team charged with studying some of these concerns through the Environmental Dynamics and GeoEcology (EDGE) Institute.
