Here are the seven projects awarded EVP grants in 2011:

Compromised Groundwater Quality Resulting from Large-Scale Damming Projects: In 2006, China completed construction of the massive Three Gorges Dam across the Yangtze River. This EVP will look at the impact of the dam on the groundwater supply for more than 30 million people who inhabit the region.

Principal Investigator (PI): Scott Fendorf (Environmental Earth System Science/Woods Institute).

Co-PIs: Stephan Graham (Geological and Environmental Sciences), Richard Luthy (Civil and Environmental Engineering/Woods Institute), and Steven Gorelick and Eric Lambin (Environmental Earth System Science/Woods Institute).

Rapid Assessment of Human Exposure to Airborne Persistent Organic Pollutants: More than 15 percent of Americans report sensitivities to indoor environments a condition known as "sick building syndrome." Utilizing new laser technology, the EVP team will develop a portable instrument that measures volatile organic compounds in air and breath samples with unprecedented speed and accuracy.

PI: Lynn Hildemann (Civil and Environmental Engineering).

Co-PI: Mark Cullen (Medicine).

Investigator: Konstantin Vodopyanov (Applied Physics).

Geography of Food Contamination by Coal Emissions in N.W. China: Mercury, lead and other atmospheric emissions from coal combustion adversely affect the health of hundreds of millions of people across China. The EVP team will map Chinese croplands most at risk from airborne contaminants, allowing managers to develop land-use policies that maximize yields and minimize health impacts.

PI: Eric Lambin (Environmental Earth System Science/Woods Institute).

Co-PIs: Jennifer Wilcox (Energy Resources Engineering), Scott Fendorf (Environmental Earth System Science/Woods Institute) and David Freyberg (Civil and Environmental Engineering/Woods Institute).'/>"/>
