The Environment research topic has historically been focused on three primary areas including water, air, and noise. Each of these areas has been further separated into subtopics of emphasis, such as groundwater, wastewater, various air quality concerns, and noise modeling. Other topics have also been added to this overall research field to address issues such as NEPA compliance, alternative fuels, and climate change impacts.
