World Wide Research Map

Our faculty and students work around the world, studying how physical, biological, and cultural processes shape the landscape in which we live and cause regions to differ from each other.

  • On June 27, 2008, the University of Delaware and Xiamen University (China) officially established the Joint Institute for Coastal Research and Management, a world-class global collaborative research initiative.
  • CEOE hosted a delegation from the Korea Institute of Ocean Science and Technology (KIOST) in May 2013 to discuss potential areas of future collaboration in advanced ocean research.

Many are engaged in the study of global climate change and its potential environmental impacts. For example, our researchers are examining the remains of ancient microscopic marine organisms in deep-sea sediments for evidence of past climate history. In frozen polar ecosystems, they are investigating the connection between global climate warming and shifts in permafrost zones and learning more about the role that microscopic plants and animals play in the world's climate cycle. Our scientists also are studying the flow of freshwater from the Arctic Ocean into the North Atlantic and how this flux impacts ocean circulation and global climate.

Other experts in our college specialize in human interactions with our natural and built environments. They look at the many cultural, economic, social, and environmental factors that contribute to the set laws and policies in the United States and aboard. In addition, they study the many interconnected and complex relationships among humans, natural resources, and the global economy.
