Center for Multiphase Environmental Research


Washington State University (WSU) established the Center for Multiphase Environmental Research during the 1996 - 1997 academic year.  Our research is designed to gain a better understanding of the factors that affect the fate and transport of contaminants in the environment, recognizing that these factors are dictated by processes that occur at the interface between material phases.

CMER is a 1999 grant recipient of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Integrative Graduate Education and Research Training (IGERT) Program.  NSF created this multidisciplinary graduate training program "to enable the development of innovative, research-based, graduate education and training activities that will produce a diverse group of new scientists and engineers well-prepared for a broad spectrum of career opportunities".
