About the Air Resources Engineering Center

The Air Resources Engineering Center (AREC) is an Institute-wide catalyst for research in air quality and its effects, air pollution and its control, and climate change and its regional impacts. Through the Center, investigators from a wide range of disciplines - including the physical and life sciences, applied engineering, economics, and social sciences - work together to address current needs and identify emerging issues related to air resources in the Southeastern United States, with a particular emphasis on Georgia.


The Mission of AREC is to initiate, facilitate, and coordinate independent and joint research programs in air resources. The Center accomplishes its mission by leading and lending expertise for developing proposals, managing projects, and providing outreach and information and technology transfer to federal, state, and local decision-makers, as well as the media and general public. AREC also coordinates the use of many shared resources that are important for major field and laboratory investigations.
