Celebrating the women scientists of our group.
Motivated by the need to sustainably and equitably support a growing world population, we study the physical underpinnings that make soils habitable environments. Our research blends fundamental environmental and soil physics with applications in agroecology and environmental stewardship.
Inclusivity and equity are the basis for the topics we study, how we treat one another, and how we engage with our community.
Basics of the hydrological cycle and the global climate system. Fundamentals of surface water hydrology, hydrometeorology, evaporation, precipitation, statistical and probabilistic methods, unit hydrograph and flood routing.
Hydrologic and geologic factors controlling the occurrence and use of groundwater on regional and local scales. Physical, mathematical, geologic and engineering concepts fundamental to subsurface hydrologic processes. Introduction to ground-water flow and transport modeling, with emphasis on model construction and simulation.
An advanced study of modeling environmental sciences. The first half of the course a survey of common modeling approaches of environmental phenomena. In the second half, student work on individual projects that involve modeling environmental systems or processes. Often students work on problems related to their thesis/dissertation area. (Graduate Only).
