Welcome to the Watershed Modeling Lab in the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering at Kansas State University.

The Watershed Modeling Lab is very active in using watershed models to solve real-life problems. The Lab currently is working on a range of modeling projects:

  • impacts of climate change and variability,
  • impacts of bioenergy-related land-use shifts,
  • development of watershed resestoration and protection strategy (WRAPS) plans,
  • ephemeral gully modeling,
  • incorporation of concentrated-flow sediment (ephemeral gully, stream bank, and legacy stream bed) sources in watershed modeling,
  • use of NEXRAD radar precipitation estimates in watershed modeling,
  • use of watershed modeling to assess ecosystem services, and
  • water quality trading.
NSF Grad Research Fellows
NSF Names Two BAE Fellows
NSF awarded Emily Tummons (BSE senior, above) and Emily Mangus (BSE 2008) with 2010 Grad Research Fellowships.

The National Science Foundation has awarded two BAE students with NSF Graduate Research Fellowships.  This award recognizes outstanding students pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering or mathematics.  BAE recipients are:  Ms. Emily Tummons, BSE senior; and Mrs. Emily Mangus, 2008 BAE graduate. 

Ms. Tummons is a member of the K-State chapters of Golden Key International Honor Society, the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society, Tau Beta Pi National Engineering Society, Alpha Epsilon Honorary Society for Biological and Agricultural Engineers, Alpha Chi Omega Sorority, and is the first vice president of the K-State Chapter of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers.  Emily will graduate this spring and plans to attend Michigan State University in the fall, where she has received a University Distinguished Fellowship to pursue a doctoral degree in environmental engineering with a focus on membrane separations for water purification.

Mrs. Mangus, a 2008 K-State summa cum laude graduate in BAE, is currently studying bioengineering at the University of Kansas.  In 2010 she received an honorable mention for the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship.

Congratulations to both Emily Tummons and Emily Mangus for their outstanding achievements!
