Graduate study in water resources and related areas can lead to the master's and doctor's degrees at the University of Delaware. Departments involved in water resources programs include Civil & Environmental Engineering, Geography, Geology, Bioresources Engineering, Marine Studies, and Science.
Examples of current areas of research are the modeling solid waste landfill hydrology and leaching; photocatalytic oxidation for cleanup of toxic organic chemicals from ground water; herbicide retention and movement in coastal plain soils; predicting soil moisture regimes; biodegradation of petroleum leaks from underground storage tanks; and a quantitative model of riverbank erosion.
