About the Lab


We Design and Apply Computer Simulation Models to:

  • Estimate how ecosystem services and water resources will respond to environmental change and human actions
  • Integrate data from diverse sources (remote sensing, field observations, chemicals, flow rates) with mechanistic understanding
  • Visualize the invisible movement of water, and materials through the environment




LOGO300RHESSys: The Regional Hydro-Ecologic Simulation System

  • A GIS-based, hydro-ecological modeling framework designed to simulate carbon, water, and nutrient fluxes
  • Combines a set of physically-based process models and a methodology for partitioning and parameterizing the landscape
  • Models the spatial distribution and spatio-temporal interactions between different processes at the watershed scale
