Mission: To organize scientists from the Florida State University, federal and state agencies and environmental consulting companies to conduct basic and applied research on water related environmental problems in karst areas and to apply for federal and state competitive grants. The research results will provide the scientific basis for policies and regulations made to protect Florida’s environment. The establishment of the KEC within FSU will improve FSU research and support the University’s mission of seeking to “provide service to the public in accord with its State-wide mission.” A more specific objective of the center is to provide a platform for faculty members in the affiliated disciplines to cooperate with each other and with non-FSU scientists and resource managers in the pursuit and conduct of multi-disciplinary research in environmental sciences and management. The center will also provide educational, training and employment opportunities for FSU students in these fields.
