Foundations

Foundations are SESYNC recruited projects on critical, emerging or understudied topics, or efforts that bring new disciplinary perspectives to S-E scholarship.

Graduate Pursuit: Identifying Socio-Environmental Watershed Typologies Based on Stormwater Pollution Using Machine Learning

 

Identifying Socio-Environmental Watershed Typologies Based on Stormwater Pollution Using Machine Learning

This project represents the first socio-environmental-technological system (SETS) study of the generation of stormwater pollution in urban watersheds across the United States. Urban stormwater pollution poses a major and growing threat to local waterbodies, yet its study and management has consistently ignored the human activities and behaviors that release pollution.

Pursuit: Plastic Mitigation

 

Mitigating oceanic plastic pollution: modeling inputs, interventions and future scenarios to direct mitigation strategies for achieving measurable improvements to marine ecosystems

The objective of this Pursuit is to develop and validate an online and user-friendly tool for groups to evaluate intervention scenarios aimed at addressing the global challenge of marine plastic pollution.

Pursuit: Global socioeconomic drivers of insect invasions

 

Global socioeconomic drivers of insect invasions

Biological invasions are largely an unintended consequence of globalization. With increasing mobility, humans have accidentally transported organisms around the world, breaking the geographical boundaries that separated species ranges that persisted for millions of years of evolution.

Pursuit: A socio-environmental synthesis of the linkages between water scarcity induced conflict and land use/land cover change in Africa to enhance multi-scalar decision making

 

"A socio-environmental synthesis of the linkages between water scarcity induced conflict and land use/land cover change in Africa to enhance multi-scalar decision making"

This Pursuit will combine the expertise of social and environmental scientists, NGOs, and government officials to examine where, when, how and why conflicts arise over water.
