Press Release 13-089
NSF Invests in Science and Engineering Infrastructure in Key Areas Across the Nation

Delaware, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico and Oklahoma will each receive $20 million for strategically aligned, innovative research

Back to article | Note about images

In Delaware, research aims to protect industrial brownfields in coastal, flood prone areas.

Numerous industrial brownfields such as this site in Wilmington, Delaware, are located in low-lying coastal areas prone to flooding during storms and vulnerable to inundation from sea-level rise. Such sites often sequester chemical contaminants in their soils, and little is known about how such contaminants will react and mobilize in the presence of saltwater. Delaware's EPSCoR RII grant will examine this problem from chemical, hydrological, and socioeconomic perspectives.

Delaware EPSCoR researcher Juejun Hu holds a sensor chip, while Chaoying Ni looks on. The chip actually consists of a dozen tiny nano-sensors on a flexible piece of plastic. Such chips can be combined into palm-sized, portable sensor packages that can be placed in the environment to provide real-time monitoring of chemical species in soil, water, or air. The development of new environmental sensors and monitoring equipment is an important aspect of Delaware EPSCoR's RII.
