The Interface Among Hydrology, Geomorphology, and Ecology

The overarching research theme of the group is the study of interacting hydrological and ecological processes from the plant to the regional scale. Ongoing research includes:

  • How two-way interactions beimage_04tween biotic and abiotic processes contribute to shaping Earth’s surface, with particular reference to tidal environments;
  • Understanding and modeling surface-atmosphere exchanges of water and CO2 as mediated by plants;image_05
  • Mosquito population dynamics as an eco-hydrological process;
  • Remote Sensing of coastal eco-geomorphodynamics;
  • Statistical modelling of extreme hydrologic events and of their changes;
  • Stochastic modelling of the watershed-scale hydrologic balance and sediment transport.
