Track-1 Research Infrastructure Award (RII): WyCEHG

Overview of Wyoming Center for Environmental Hydrology and Geophysics (WyCEHG)

Many of the most pressing issues facing the western United States hinge on the fate and transport of water and its response to diverse disturbances, including climate change, bark beetle infestations, and energy extraction. Long-term outcomes of our Track-1 project will include:

  • A nationally significant facility in hydrogeophysics that will include state-of-the-art instrumentation and will be sustained by an industry endowment

  • Interdisciplinary teams transforming water research in Wyoming

  • A comprehensive external engagement program for stakeholders

  • A workforce development program that trains students and connects them to industry internships in Wyoming

  • Outreach and diversity programs that continually increase the participation of women, minorities, and people with disabilities in WyCEHG science

Strategic Plan

The strategic plan outlines the 5-year workplan and desired outcomes of the WyCEHG project.
