EPA's National Enforcement Investigations Center is an environmental forensic center. NEIC scientists work with a variety of technologies to monitor, collect data, and analyze pollutants in the environment to better understand the threat to human health and ecosystems. Advanced technologies provide tools for scientists to measure, sometimes in near real-time, pollutants emitted from both large and small sources that can adversely affect entire communities.

Jellyfish swarms in the Gulf of Mexico help researchers identify environmental changes in the water. Dr. Monty Graham at the University of Southern Mississippi studies these massive jellyfish swarms that can stretch for up to 100 miles.
The Cummins and Eaton powertrain package delivers power and fuel efficiency like never before.
Dr. Chris Ruf, Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite Systems (CYGNSS) principal investigator, talks about the NASA mission to launch eight Earth-orbiting mini-satellites to track hurricanes.
This CH2M HILL video showcases the Atotonilco Water Treatment Plant in the Mexico Federal District. When completed, it will be the largest water treatment plant in Mexico and Latin America. The plant is designed to treat about 60 percent of the wastewater generated in Mexico City.
This US Geological Survey video captures the first “point of view” of a polar bear on Arctic sea ice. Scientists applied video camera collars to four female polar bears on the sea ice north of Prudhoe Bay, Alaska this past April and have released the first clips of footage that provide unique insight into the daily lives of the bears.

This Bureau of Reclamation 2014 video shows how generators in Grand Coulee Dam's Third Power Plant are undergoing a $100 million upgrade to bring the 40-year-old power house into the 21st century and ensure another 40 years of clean, renewable, low-cost hydropower for the Pacific Northwest.
This video is part of AWWA's Water Supply Operations series on disinfection byproducts. Disinfection is essential in the battle against waterborne disease; however, disinfectants also can create unwanted byproducts. These disinfection byproducts or DBPs are a concern because they can potentially cause long-term health issues. This creates a tough balancing act for utilities: protecting the public from waterborne disease while minimizing the occurrence and impact of DBPs. This video covers the types of disinfectants used in water treatment, how disinfection byproducts form, and strategies to control DBPs, including guidelines set by EPA through the Stage 1 and Stage 2 Disinfectants and Disinfection Byproducts Rules.
The Southwest Research Institute® has developed a demonstration vehicle powered by a breakthrough engine design called Dedicated Exhaust Gas Recirculation. Developed by SwRI through the High Efficiency Dilute Gasoline Engine consortium, D-EGR technology is a cost-effective solution to meet high-efficiency, low-emissions vehicle standards.
An 8,300-foot pipe originating at Detroit Renewable Power will bring 15.8 megawatts of renewable energy to Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly. Watch this animation to see how DRE turns waste into energy.
The negative impacts of man-made CO2 emissions on the environment are already well researched and documented. But the damaging effects of the increasing amounts of carbon dioxide that are ending up in our seas and oceans are less well known. Marine scientists at the IAEA's Environment Laboratories in Monaco are using a range of nuclear and isotopic techniques to study a process known as "Ocean Acidification."
