Building Smarter, Stronger Communities

Welcome to the Center for Applied Earth Science and Engineering Research (CAESER).

CAESER is a new center that combines the efforts of two previous centers, the Center for Partnerships in GIS and the Ground Water Institute. 

The goal of CAESER is "building smarter, stronger communities."

We are remodeling our web site and will unveil it in mid 2016.


If you are interested in having a speaker about water, disaster resiliency, urban analytics, or mapping and GIS, please contact us via email at caeser@memphis.edu or call 901.678.5110.

If you would like to request the Water on Wheels mobile come to your school or festival, please email wow@memphis.edu or call 901.678.4229.


The Memphis Sand aquifer is a vast layer of sand saturated with water, running underneath multiple states, including west Tennessee. This underground source of water is the sole source of drinking water for Memphis, Shelby County and most of the Mid-South area.  It's naturally pure and clean, and is a superior source of drinking water, especially compared to the Mississippi River, which is the source of drinking water for St. Louis, Missouri and New Orleans, Louisiana.  

The Commercial Appeal recently ran a story about the aquifer and included photographs of the Water on Wheels (WOW) mobile, a CAESER education and outreach program. To read the story, go HERE.

CAESER's researchers are experts on groundwater and surface water, especially as they relate to the Memphis aquifer system.
