Studying the Hydrologic Cycle
We are studying the dynamics of water presence and water pathways in the terrestrial environment. The goal is to improve our understanding of the physics of the hydrological cycle at all spatial and temporal scales and to apply this new knowledge to investigate and develop technologies for environmental assessment, prediction and control.
Our research is interdisciplinary and addresses fundamental engineering science questions in the areas of climate, hydrometeorology, geomorphology, ecology, hydraulics and hydrology, and their linkages to the environmental engineering sciences.
Our projects involve the use of computer models, signal processing and exploratory data analysis, and laboratory and field experiments.
