Areas Of Study – Hydrology

Surface Water Hydrology

    * Rainfall-runoff modeling and parameter estimation
    * Operational streamflow forecasting
    * Climate variability and land-atmosphere interactions
    * Coupled fluxes of heat, moisture, and carbon at the land surface
    * Nonlinear dynamics of coupled hydrologic systems
    * Remote sensing of land surface parameters and processes
    * Data assimilation
    * Hydrometeorology and precipitation processes

Ground Water Hydrology

    * Numerical simulation of groundwater flow and contaminant transport
    * Inverse problems in distributed parameter systems
    * Experiment design for parameter estimation and model prediction
    * Modeling and optimization of seawater intrusion barriers

Water Resources Engineering

    * Optimization of large scale water resource systems
    * Conjunctive use of surface water and groundwater for sustainable management of water resources in semi-arid regions
