Cooperative Institute for Coastal and Estuarine Environmental Technology
The Cooperative Institute for Coastal and Estuarine Environmental Technology (CICEET) was established as a joint partnership between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the University of New Hampshire (UNH) in 1997 and is located on the UNH campus in Durham, NH. CICEET uses the capabilities of the University and those of the Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, as well as the other 24 reserves in the National Estuarine Research Reserve System (NERRS) to develop and apply new environmental technologies and techniques.
CICEET is co-directed by Dr. Richard Langan (Adjunct Assistant Professor of Zoology) and Dr. Dwight Trueblood (NOAA) who oversee the CICEET program and the awarding of grants to support research projects from UNH and faculty from institutions around the country. At UNH, numerous undergraduate and graduate students are supported on projects that focus on the development and implementation of new technologies to environmental challenges in our coastal and estuarine ecosystems.
CICEET currently supports 3 Marine Science Graduate Fellowships within the Marine Program for exceptional students undertaking graduate research related to the CICEET mission. For more information on CICEET, follow the link at the top of this page to the CICEET home page.
