About University of New Hampshire

Project SMART is located on the UNH campus in Durham, NH, just 13 miles from the Atlantic seacoast.

The University of New Hampshire is a public university that combines the look and feel of a classic, New England liberal arts college with the breadth and opportunity of a major research university.

Founded in 1866 as a land-grant university, the University of New Hampshire (UNH) is now a land-, sea-, and space-grant institution and is among the top-tier of research institutions in the United States.

The University is made up of dozens of academic departments, interdisciplinary institutes and research centers, attracting an international body of students and faculty to this coastal New England community. More about UNH...

Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space
at the University of New Hampshire

The interdisciplinary research at UNH's Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space (EOS) places it in the forefront of academic centers offering opportunities for students to work alongside distinguished faculty on high-level research projects.

EOS researchers have expertise in space science, engineering, atmospheric chemistry, biogeochemistry, climate change, paleoclimatology, forest and wetland ecology, marine science, ocean dynamics and chemistry, ocean mapping, hydrology, and remote sensing of terrestrial and ocean ecosystems. They can be found in the pages of Science and Nature and working with students on the ice sheets of Greenland, the forests of North and South America, the waters of the North Atlantic Ocean, and in laboratories designing precision instruments for spacecraft.
