Biological and Agricultural Engineering


The group's research activities focus on understanding hydrological processes at field and watershed scale under changing land use and climatic conditions in the Central Great Plains.  The projects include computer modeling, field monitoring, and laboratory experiments. We are also studying description, analysis, and prevention of non-point source pollution on agricultural fields, including soil erosion by water.

To accomplish the goals, we use a broad range of tools, including geographic information system (ArcGIS, QGIS), hydrologic models (SWAT, APEX, tRIBS), geospatial datasets, object-oriented programming, and the combination of these technologies to form advanced information systems for environmental and water resources specialists and engineers.
