About Our Research

Drawing on UCI strengths, Water UCI has built teams of investigators to exchange knowledge and better network with investigators from other UCs, other universities and various research institutes. Our emphasis is on convergent science – melding natural, physical, and engineering, social, and policy science around issue-focused needs. Achievements have evolved along two distinct lines: (1) meetings, organized with external support, which have resulted in post-meeting publications; and, (2) new scholarly synergies, leading to novel opportunities. 

In addition Water UCI works closely with local water utilities, agencies, governments and the private sector to advance water research in Southern CA, throughout the U.S. and in foreign countries.
