Lautz Hydrology Lab
My research group is interested in understanding how physical hydrologic processes influence water quality and movement through watersheds. In particular, we research how water moves through paired surface water and groundwater systems, and how nutrients and other solutes are processed and transported by streams. We work on several specific interdisciplinary research projects, within which we used field experiments coupled with computer modeling experiments.
- The Education Model Program on Water-Energy Research (EMPOWER) NRT program at Syracuse was funded by NSF!
- Sarah Ledford's paper on the role of groundwater discharge in urban streams is now in volume!
- Dylan Irvine's paper on mapping streambed fluxes using heat tracing is now online!
- Congratulations to Ryan Gordon for his new position as Hydrogeologist for the Maine Geological Survey!
Graduate Study in the Lautz Lab
Are you interested in graduate study in my research group? We are looking for great students! You can read more about my ongoing research projects on my Research page. You can read more about applying to my research program and the Department of Earth Sciences at Syracuse on the Opportunities page. I look forward to hearing from you.
