Stanford Environmental Portal "Stanford has a tremendous amount to offer the world. If we can harness our knowledge and our skills across the sciences, the humanities, engineering, and policy areas, we can help solve some of the greatest societal problems of the century. To ensure that our contributions are useful and used, it is critical that we interact and partner with decision-makers of all kinds, including private and public leaders.
"Pamela Matson, Dean, School of Earth Sciences

Welcome to the Stanford Environmental Portal - gateway to environmental research and education at Stanford University. Created and maintained by the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, the Stanford Environmental Portal serves as a central resource for information about the remarkably wide range of environmental science and policy research across campus-from marine biology to climate change to energy conservation.

In addition to providing regularly updated lists of departments, centers and institutes engaged in environmental academics, the Stanford Environmental Portal maintains a searchable database of more than 300 faculty members working in the fields of energy and climate, land use and conservation, oceans and estuaries, and freshwater.

The Portal also provides links to campus-wide environmental events and news stories featuring Stanford researchers.

The Portal is one of many new projects inspired by the Stanford Initiative on the Environment and Sustainability -a university-wide effort to support interdisciplinary environmental research on campus.

The initiative is led by professors Pamela A. Matson, the Chester Naramore Dean of the School of Earth Sciences; and Jeffrey R. Koseff and Barton H. "Buzz" Thompson, the Perry L. McCarty directors of the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment. Together, professors Matson, Koseff, and Thompson combine 75 years of research experience in environmental issues. They are passionate in their commitment to solving environmental problems and to mobilizing Stanford's extraordinary resources to do so.
