In 2019-2020 UF Water Institute Affiliate faculty led over $171 million in active research projects spanning wide-ranging aspects of water-related sciences, engineering, policy, and law. The goals of individual research projects include such diverse interests as advancing the understanding of fundamental physical, chemical, and biological processes in various aquatic systems, understanding how people organize themselves to use and manage water, and developing solutions to practical problems through engineering and legal applications of new scientific understanding. The spatial scales at which projects are conducted vary from the laboratory scale to the continental scale, while the temporal scales of interest range from seconds to millennia.
