Research Labs and Groups
|Berkeley Environmental Fluids Laboratory (BEFL)|| |
The Environmental Fluid Mechanics group at UC Berkeley uses numerical, observational, and theoretical tools to study the movement of water and air in the natural environment.
|Berkeley Seismological Laboratory|| |
The Seismological Laboratory is involved in operating seismic networks in central and northern California, with the mission to conduct and promote research to further our understanding of earthquake processes.
|Berkeley Water Working Group|| |
The WWG is sponsored by Berkeley's Institute of International Studies, and co-sponsored by the Center for Sustainable Resource Development. It meets once a month to discuss a particular water problem, and at least two approaches to its resolution.
|Berkeley Workshop on Environmental Politics|| |
The Berkeley Workshop on Environmental Politics has a commitment to environmental studies on the UC Berkeley campus.
|Building Science Group and Laboratory|| |
Building Science at the University of California Berkeley is dedicated to the energy efficiency and environmental quality of buildings. Its underlying premise is that energy-use patterns and environmental quality are related, and that this relationship contains great opportunities to improve the built environment. Building Science also has the objective of breaking down the compartmentalized decision-making that now characterizes building practice. Its research and teaching address the decisions made by architects, engineers, specifiers, facilities managers, and owners.
|Cal/EPA Interagency Agreement for Science Review|| |
UC Berkeley has the responsibility, on behalf of the UC Board of Regents, to provide to Cal/EPA upon request the names of qualified candidates to serve for legally-mandated science reviews of all draft environmental regulations.
|Community Forestry and Environmental Research Partnerships|| |
Founded in 1996, the Community Forestry & Environmental Research Partnerships program supports collaborative research on natural resource management with communities in the United States. The mission of the CFRF Program is to nurture a new generation of scholars and university-community partnerships to build community capacity and stewardship of natural resources.
|Craig Moritz Research Group|| |
To use molecular approaches to study ecology and evolution.
|Environmental Measurements Laboratory|| |
The Environmental Measurement Laboratory (EML) is an EPA/California Department of Health Services certified analytical lab within the Earth Sciences Division (ESD) for researchers at DOE laboratories and the University of California. The EML has the capabilities to conduct a variety of analyses covering both organic and inorganic methods, including examination of water, soil, sediment, seawater, and waste water samples.
|Firestone Lab of Soil Microbiology|| |
Research interactions of bacteria with the soil environment.
|Harte Lab||To study global change ecology and spatial patterns of species distribution.|
|Kelly Research and Outreach Lab|| |
Wetland and terrestrial monitoring and management at UC Berkeley.
|Laboratory for Environmental and Sedimentary Geochemistry|| |
To study both the modern and past environment with geochemical and sedimentary evidence. These studies are important in addressing society’s concern with how human activities are changing Earth’s climate and natural environment.
|Natural Resource Governance Group|| |
The mission of the Natural Resource Governance Program is to establish a university-wide research nexus for natural resource governance scholarship using social science tools of economics, geographic information systems (GIS), sociology and ecosystem sciences, where the study of natural resource management institutions is the focus.
|Silver Lab||Our lab focuses on ecosystem ecology and biogeochemical cycling in the plant-soil-atmosphere interfaces, the effects of disturbance on nutrient cycling, and the relationships among nutrient cycling, land-use, and biodiversity.|
