“An 18-wheeler diesel-engine truck would have to drive 143 miles on the freeway to put out the same mass of particles as a single charbroiled hamburger patty,” said Bill Welch, principal development engineer at UC Riverside’s Center for Environmental Research and Technology. “In my 18 years researching this, I haven’t found a more difficult source to control.”

Welch and his students have sizzled more than 4 tons of ground beef since starting their research in 1994. They have cooked 4,000 burgers just since May to test devices that would capture the offending particles before they reach the air.

UC Riverside is ranked 9th in the nation among the ‘best in the nation’ (ABC 7, Bay Area News).

Kudos to the 9 California-based colleges that made it on the Top 100 

Below are the Washington Monthly’s 2012 national universities rankings. We rate schools based on their contribution to the public good in three broad categories: Social Mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students), Research (producing cutting-edge scholarship and PhDs), andService (encouraging students to give something back to their country). For an explanation of each category, click here. For more information about the overall goals of the rankings, click here. To learn more about our methodology, click here.

Use the above dropdown menu to switch to different categories of schools. Click on the “sort” button at the top of each column to sort schools by that category. You can also sort the list by state or by name of college. * Indicates a public school, ° indicates a for-profit school

Last year we were 5th on the list, but, hey, Top 10 doe. I ain’t mad!
