Hydrological and Surface Processes

Hydrological and Surface Processes

Water is perhaps our most valuable resource critical to agriculture, livestock, energy, and health. Baylor Geosciences is involved in assessing water resources, managing and measuring water quality, exploring sediment dynamics, investigating algal blooms, understanding the fate and transport of contaminants, and studying the hydrologic cycle. In addition to wastewater research, we have specific expertise in groundwater and surface water field-study campaigns and numerical modeling and simulation including uncertainty quantification and sensitivity analyses. Research is also focused on surface processes, the evolution of landscapes and geomorphic features, modern and ancient soils, and geoarcheology.
