    Generating new knowledge about the occurrence, distribution, and quality of water in the environment

Hydrologic Sciences

This research group uses state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to generate new knowledge about the occurrence, distribution, and quality of water in the environment. The role of water as an essential component of the environment and key driver of climate system, and the impact of human activities on the quality and quantity of water are also studied. That research has strong field, laboratory, and modelling components. Together with our graduate and senior undergraduate students we conduct world-class research on Climate Change, Soil water, Ecohydrology, Wetlands, Contaminant Hydrogeology, Arctic and Cold Regions Hydrology, Vadose Zone Hydrology, Hydroclimatology, and Hydrologic Models including physical, statistical and Neural Network Models.
