TIAER Researchers Working
to Protect Texas’ Environment 


The long-term effects of Hurricane Harvey are ongoing – and the Texas Institute for Applied Environmental Research (TIAER) at Tarleton State University is leading the way in researching their impact.

Line Items recently interviewed Quenton Dokken, TIAER’s executive director, to learn more about the institute’s work, including its latest undertaking: an extensive look at the long-term effects of Hurricane Harvey on the Texas coast and steps that should be taken before the next major storm strikes.

TIAER conducts research to help protect public health, enhance Texans’ quality of life and serve the state’s agricultural industry to keep our economy strong.
