Assessing Community Resilience
Following a natural disaster or major emergency, what does it take for a community to bounce back? A UM research team is finding out.
Investigating the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill
UM researchers are dedicating their service and expertise in an ongoing response to the Gulf's most devastating environmental crisis.
Maintaining the Biodiversity of Mississippi’s Past
Experimental work in the north Mississippi hills may show that tornadoes and forest fires are tied to restoring ecological diversity.
Microscopic Life in the Mighty Mississippi
A UM researcher is studying the ecological health of the Mississippi River and its tributaries.
Preparing for Flood Risk
UM researchers are assessing levee failure risk and finding ways to protect people and infrastructure in worst-case scenarios.
Protecting Fish Populations
A UM research project seeks to help restore the red snapper population in the Gulf of Mexico by reducing bycatch.
Testing the Waters
A UM researcher is finding innovative ways to collect samples and check water quality.
The Power of Pollutants
The UM Environmental Toxicology Research Program investigates how contaminants affect our health and the health of generations to come.
The Sound of Danger
Powerful acoustic sensors developed by NCPA researchers may help scientistis better pinpoint tornadoes and measure hurricane intensity.
Ways to Withstand and Recover
An integrated geospatial database of the Delta’s critical facilities is designed to help communities assess flood risk and mitigate disaster.
When the Dam Breaks
Simulation software developed by a UM research center is used for swift analysis in the face of floods and hurricanes.
Working in settings from the woodland landscapes protecting Mississippi’s rich plant diversity to the rivers and water bodies supporting our ecosystems, University of Mississippi researchers are preserving our state for coming generations. They’re searching for forward-thinking solutions to benefit Mississippi’s farmers and fishermen while protecting both land and sea, and leading the way in crafting the plans, policies and technologies to improve the way Mississippi recovers from natural disasters.
