Water and Environmental Research Center

WERC's mission is to perform basic and applied research related to water and environmental resources, to train graduate students at master's and PhD levels in this field, and to disseminate pertinent research information to the public.

Graduate education is acquired through student participation in various research projects. Funding is obtained from state and federal agencies as well as from private companies and foundations. Faculty, staff, and students at WERC are working to develop a better understanding of the arctic and subarctic environments.

WERC operates the Alaska Stable Isotope Facility (ASIF) which is a state of the art laboratory conducting stable isotope analyses of a wide range of sample types for researchers from all over the world.
