The goal of the program is to produce scientists with strong technical skills in disciplines relevant to water resources and a broad understanding of 1) the hydrologic cycle and associated ecosystems, 2) the interconnectedness of the sciences involved in managing aquatic resources, and 3) the interplay between the biophysical sciences and social sciences in developing and implementing public policies related to water.
Students in the program develop the breadth of scientific knowledge appropriate to understand the complicated aquatic ecosystems and watersheds on which they will work, as well as social dimensions of the topic, including the public policy and legal frameworks in which water resources are protected and managed.
The program involves faculty from the following departments on the Twin Cities campus: Applied Economics, Bioproducts and Biosystems Engineering, Civil Engineering, Earth Sciences, Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior, Entomology, Environmental and Occupational Health, Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology, Forest Resources, Geography, Horticultural Science, Plant Biology, and Soil, Water, and Climate. It also involves faculty from the following departments on the Duluth campus: Biology, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Civil Engineering Geography, Geological Sciences, Physics, as well as the Large Lakes Observatory and the Natural Resources Research Institute in Duluth.
