Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center

Science

The majority of ecological research conducted at the Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center (UMESC) supports Department of the Interior (DOI) issues and lands in the Upper Midwest. UMESC also coordinates its research with other U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Science Centers, to broadly address ecological and population concerns throughout the Nation's heartland.
