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, Julie Anne Wrigley 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.

Sabbatical News: Prof. Vivoni will be on sabbatical during the 2015-2016 academic year at Centro de Investigación Científica y de Educación Superior de Ensenada in Baja California conducting research on hydroclimatic changes in Mexico. Group research activities will continue in Tempe and new graduate students will be recruited for Fall 2016 admission, see Contacts Page Limited email contact and reduced campus availability should be expected during this period.

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.
