Purdue Hydrology


Activities this Summer

UAV operations continue at ACRE. Water sampling continues on the Wabash River. Field sampling continues at ACRE and TPAC on the two-stage ditch, biofuel plots and the soil moisture transect. Lots of models running on the new conte cluster nodes.


Jing Tan has been awarded a NASA graduate student fellowship to complete her PhD.

Guy Bou Lahdau has defended his Master thesis!

Lili Wang and Jing Tan passed their preliminary exams and are now Ph.D. Candidates.

Our research group currently consists of two faculty members and fourteen graduate research assistants, focusing primarily on the hydrologic impacts of environmental change at a range of scales, through the use of in-situ data collection, remote sensing and hydrologic models.

Current interests being pursued in the hydrologic impacts group can be broadly grouped into four general areas: 

I. Evaluating the role of land management

II. Characterizing the effects of landcover/land-use change

III. Predicting hydrologic change in cold regions

IV. Climate change impacts on regional hydrology

V. Remote sensing of water quality in rivers and lakes
