Natural, Ecological, and Cultural Resource Management

As the base of DRI’s research portfolio, the expansion and application of these long-established research components to wider constituents are the keys to growth and moving forward.

  • Management and preservation of environmental and cultural resources.
  • Understanding the influences of climatic and anthropogenic change on species, ecosystems, and societies.
  • Analysis of natural and managed geomorphic systems and their response to changes in climate and tectonic deformation.
  • Develop sustainable approaches to foster resilience in natural and managed systems, including conservation and reuse technologies, and treatment processes to mitigate undesired impacts on resources.
  • Monitoring and restoration of contaminated air, water, and land.
  • Geothermal, solar and other renewable energy solutions.
