Welcome to Hydrologic Science, Engineering and Sustainability at Arizona State University:

Our research group at Arizona State University studies hydrological processes in natural and urban environments and their interactions with ecological, atmospheric and geomorphic phenomenon. In these pages, you can learn about the current projects in our group, our field and modeling activities, our various group members and how to apply to join our group. We are part of the School of Earth and Space Exploration, Global Institute of Sustainability and School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment. Thus, we are integrating scientific, engineering and sustainability principles in water resources. Our students are part of graduate programs in Hydrosystems Engineering, Environmental Engineering and Earth System Sciences.

Research and Focus Areas:

Watershed hydrology; ecohydrology; hydrometeorology; environmental sensor networks; geographical information systems; remote sensing; distributed hydrologic modeling; parallel computing; participatory modeling; decision-making support; climate change and land use impacts; sustainability science.
