Environmental Lab Operation Policies

Safety along with state-of-the-art research is the primary goal for the operation of the Environmental Engineering Laboratories. All students, faculty and staff are expected to adhere to the University policies [http://ppo.tamuk.edu/ehs]. Additionally, internal group training is given frequently for lab safety, operations in the field, electrical instrumentation operation, and working with pressurized gas.

The internal lab safety instruction for our students, faculty and staff is outlined in the following files. All our personnel must review and follow these protocols to protect themselves and others in the laboratories and the field.

Living Labs for Academics and Research (LLAR) - Field Sites

The LLAR locations within the group create field scale facilities for research on environmental sustainability for semi-arid coastal areas and serve to evaluate impacts of sustainable technologies as solutions for environmental problems in semi-arid areas. Example field scale sites include constructed wetlands for water treatment, field scale biofiltration applications, and air quality monitoring stations.

Environmental Engineering Research Equipment

The advanced equipment and the well trained faculty in environmental engineering help the students achieve critical knowledge and experience, in environmental studies and solutions. All students have access to state-of-the-art instrumentation and field equipment.

Computation Facilities

The laboratories also have excellent computational resources to which all students have access. State-of-the-art software and hardware resources are available in classrooms, research labs, and a new High Performance computing Center (the server at http://grid.tamuk.edu is no longer available contact kjones@tamuk.edu for more information on the computing center).
