Environmental Sciences Division, National Exposure Research Laboratory, Office of Research and Development, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
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 settings.
