The Watershed Hydrology lab led by Professor Jeff McDonnell conducts field, lab and modeling investigations that address the following questions:
The PhD students in the group are active experimentalists working on similar questions in diverse watershed settings while the Post Docs in the group help to integrate findings through model development and testing. Our ultimate goal is to explore the common features of watershed response across diverse scales, climates, and hydrogeological settings to develop a new theoretical framework for streamflow generation in humid regions. Visitors to the lab are very welcome and students wishing to pursue a PhD or Post Doc within our group are encouraged to apply directly to Prof. McDonnell.
