Our research group currently consists of two faculty members and their graduate and undergraduate research assistants and post-doctoral researchers, 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 these 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 and the phenology of agricultural crops

VI. Improving the simulation of agricultural crops in the face of a changing climate
