Water researchers work across the entire water cycle and include studies on precipitation, run-off, groundwater, lakes, wetlands, rivers and streams. They examine how environmental changes affect water quality and supplies, model water movement to predict water availability, and learn more about water's connections to climate, ecosystems and human communities.

This database contains ground-water nitrate and pesticide data that have been compiled from federal, state and local agencies and the University of Nebraska; screened for essential data elements; evaluated using established criteria; and assigned a quality flag that corresponds to one of five quality assessment levels.
An interactive map depicts the locations where historical measurements of nitrate and other agrichemicals core samples were collected from the vadose zone in Nebraska. The vadose zone is the interval between the crop rooting zone and the water table and is critically important region for storage, transport and transformation of chemicals that can impact groundwater quality.
