DRI's programs are ongoing, long-term efforts ranging from scientific research to education and outreach.
Our programs address such issues as renewable energy and green power; long-term stewardship of contaminated sites; devising strategies to address desertification and other arid land management issues; reversing the decline in Lake Tahoe’s water clarity; meeting water quality and availability needs in developing countries; and visualizing a broad array of atmospheric, hydrologic, and ecological data.
