Current Research

Effects of climate change and land management on water quantity and quality; Application of computer simulation models, GIS, and remote sensing in quantifying water balances at multiple temporal and spatial scales. Impacts of global change on water supply and demand. Forestry Best Management Practices in affecting and soil erosion and sedimenttransport in watersheds. Hydrology of forested wetland ecosystems

Current Projects:
  1. Measuring and modeling carbon and water flux dynamics and processes across a climatic and management gradients in theeastern U.S. and China
  2. Modeling the potential effects of climate change, landuse change, and population growth on water supply and demand in the continental U.S.
  3. Evaluating the effectiveness of forest buffers on water quality and flow generations in the Piedmont region of North Carolina
