The gray, barrel-shaped instrument in Olin Hall may look like an oversized water heater, but what happens inside is helping South Carolina play a leading role in research that ensures nuclear waste is stored safely for generations to come.
Clemson graduate student engineers are part of a collaborative multidisciplinary team working with the people of a small rural village in Belize to provide “free” sustainable energy for the village by converting food waste into fuel for cooking. Shakira Hobbs, a PhD candidate in the Glenn Department of Civil Engineering, first visited Sittee River Village […]
Current models used to predict the survival of species in a warming world might be off target, according to new research that enlisted the help of dozens of spiny lizards in the New Mexico desert.
The Clemson University Center for Watershed Excellence, Clemson Online and the Cooperative Extension Service have opened registration for the fall Master Pond Manager course beginning Sept. 21. The course provides pond owners and managers with information and hands-on practice to improve recreational and stormwater pond function, while ensuring appropriate management practices are in place to protect downstream waterways.
The Clemson University Cooperative Extension Service and Carolina Clear have launched an initiative to help property owners install rain gardens to mitigate potential flood damage and help protect South Carolina water quality.
A renewable energy expert who has held several leadership positions in industry and academia will play a central role in building Clemson University’s new research and graduate education programs at its fast-growing site in North Charleston.
A rumbling robot and several high-flying drones recently made an on-site appearance at Clemson University to burrow through and buzz above 15 acres of experimental sorghum plots containing more than 2,800 replicated entries at Simpson Research Farm.
Inside the 11 stainless steel cylinders lined up in David Freedman’s lab at Clemson University are rock samples that were pulled from deep below the Earth’s surface and could help shed light on one of the world’s most widespread environmental challenges.
Millions of acres of magnificent longleaf pine forests that were nearly annihilated a century ago are making a slow yet promising comeback, thanks in part to a team of Clemson University researchers and their collaborators.
Trees that are removed during forest restoration projects could find their way into car bumpers and fenders as part of a study led by Srikanth Pilla of Clemson University
Clemson University associate professor and two graduate students are working with Tennessee State Parks to determine if there is such a thing as too many visitors in state parks. Their research aims to determine how an adjustment to management practices can keep three Tennessee state parks enjoyable while also allowing access to a growing number of park visitors each year.
A dangerously prolific invasive ant species called the tawny crazy ant has been spreading throughout the South and now appears to be on the verge of entering South Carolina for the first time. But a team of Clemson University scientists is hot on the trail.
