Purdue Hydrology


Welcome New Students!

Both Anthony Hearst and MD. Sanoar Rahman have joined the group this fall.


Fushcia Hoover successfully submitted her Master's degree and will stay at Purdue to work on her PhD.

Outstanding Student Presentation at IWRA

Congratulations to Colton Yoder for being awarded Outstanding Student Presentation at the 2013 IWRA Conference for his presentation "Subsurface Hydrology Effects on Chemical Transport in Agricultural Drainage Ditches Using a 20 Meter Flume"!  Colton will travel to the national AWRA annual meeting in Portland, OR, in November.

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

If you are interested in joining our group, please visit either the Agronomy Department or Agricultural and Biological Engineering Department for graduate application instructions.
