Improving water turbulence modeling to tackle invasive carp

A Mizzou Engineer is helping develop new river turbulence modeling capabilities in hopes of determining potential spawning locations for invasive carp. Assistant Professor Binbin Wang in civil and environmental engineering (CEE) is teaming up with the U.S. Geological Survey’s Columbia Environmental Research Center (CERC) on the project. “We want to be able to control these […]

Improving health by improving water filtration

Improving health by improving water filtration

A research team led by Mizzou Engineers recently published an article on how to potentially remove arsenic from ground water more efficiently with less expense for household use. Professor Baolin Deng, with lead author Zhengyang “Philip” Wang, an MU doctorial graduate, produced a proof-of-concept over-the-counter water filter that uses a new mass re-equilibrium process to […]
