Faculty Research

Our purpose as educators is to provide you with a high quality education. In order to do that, we have to make sure we’re staying on top of the latest research.

Our faculty has a wide variety of research interests such as travel and tourism, geospatial technologies and their applications, and atmospheric science.  Here are a few examples:

  • Pacific Rim ports and development as well as ethnic Southeast Asians in North America (Christopher Airriess)
  • The influence of the North American Oscillation (NAO) on summer streamflow and winter snowfall variability in the Eastern United States (Jill Coleman)
  • Agricultural land changes in the urban expansion during the past two decades in Shanxi Province of China (Jason Yang)
  • The Effect of Snow on Traffic Counts in Upstate New York (Dave Call

As you can see, we cover a lot of areas, and it’s all for your benefit.
