Notre Dame Ecosystem Facility Offers Unique Opportunity to Develop More Accurate Models

November 16, 2017

Although the United States had its industrial revolution in the 1800s, other countries are now experiencing their manufacturing boom in the 21st century. This means that more advanced manufactured materials are being produced, including engineered nanoparticles whose exact impact on the environment and human health are unknown, but whose effects could be quite negative. To better understand such threats, researchers are using the Notre Dame Linked Experimental Ecosystem Facility to study how these engineered nanoparticles will move and spread in the natural environment.
