We aim to address the following major science issues, in the near future with additional Associate Faculty:

  • Climate Change Impacts on Hydrology and Water Resources of Indian Rivers; Uncertainty Quantification; Detection and Attribution; Non-stationarity introduced by climate change and landuse change ; Impacts on floods and droughts
  • Fast and Slow Response to Climate Change
  • Response of Himalayan Glaciers to Climate Change; Implications for Streamflow
  • Retrieving the evapotranspiration (ET) using MODIS RS data based on surface energy balance and validating it with the flux tower measurements.
  • Modeling spatial variations of groundwater recharge using a combination of remotely sensed evapotranspiration and distributed hydrological models
  • Regional Frequency Analysis of Hydrological Extreme Events (Floods and Droughts)
  • Modeling Hydrologic Extremes using Microwave Remote Sensing
  • Hydrologic Flux Retrieval, Validation and Modelling: Ganga-Brahmaputra Daily Discharge Analysis and Modelling
  • Water Balance Studies Using Isotope Techniques
  • Hydrograph separation into surface and groundwater (base flow) components
  • Estimation of surface and ground water contributions to storage in lakes
  • Characterization and remediation of BTEX contaminated aquifers
  • Modeling Urban Water Distribution Systems
    • Dynamics of flow processes controlling quantity and quality
    • Equitable distribution / leakage reduction / water quality integrity
    • Use of sensors for detection of leakages and water contamination
