Data Center Description
The Environmental Sciences Division (ESD) of the National Exposure
Research Laboratory conducts research, development, and technology
transfer programs on environmental exposures to ecological and human
receptors. ESD, located on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las
Vegas, develops methods for characterizing chemical and physical
stressors, with special emphasis on ecological exposure. The Division
develops landscape and regional assessment capabilities through the
use of remote sensing and advanced spatial analysis techniques. ESD
also conducts analytical chemistry research and applies advanced
monitoring technology to issues involving surface and subsurface
contamination. To carry out its mission, the Division applies a
multidisciplinary, multimedia approach in both laboratory and field
