Southwest Urban Corridor Integrated Field Laboratory
Advancing climate research
The Southwest Urban Corridor Integrated Field Laboratory (SW-IFL) seeks to engage stakeholders and provide scientists and decision makers with high-quality, relevant knowledge capable of spurring and guiding responses to environmental concerns. The SW-IFL is a partnership involving the three public universities in Arizona, two national laboratories, and industry.
Arizona State University leads a team that includes University of Arizona, Northern Arizona University, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Brookhaven National Laboratory, and IBM. Our initial stakeholder network includes six city governments, multiple county-level agencies, community groups, and local nonprofits throughout the region.
