Research in the School is problem-oriented and aimed at advancing knowledge and providing solutions. Our research programs span the disciplines that inform aquaculture, fisheries, forestry, geomatics, and natural resource conservation. Laboratories and projects are managed by the faculty and staff members within each discipline.
OUR RESEARCH PROGRAMS
FOREST RESOURCES & CONSERVATION
Research programs in Forest Resources & Conservation are diverse, covering aspects of forestry and natural resources spanning human dimensions, resource management and conservation, ecology, and biological and physical sciences.
FISHERIES & AQUATIC SCIENCES
Research programs in Fisheries & Aquatic Sciences are conducted in order to achieve greater understanding of the physical, chemical, and biological features of aquatic systems and to foster the informed management and husbandry of aquatic resources.
Geomatics has applications in all disciplines that depend on spatial data, including forestry, environmental studies, planning, engineering, navigation, geology, and geophysics. Data come from many sources, including Earth-orbiting satellites, air and sea-borne sensors and ground-based instruments, and is processed and manipulated with state-of-the-art information technology.
