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.
- Sarah Ledford's journal article on floodplain connection and urban stream water quality is accepted for publication in Hydrological Processes!
- Maggie Zimmer's paper is now in volume! (Zimmer, M. A. and Lautz, L. K. 2014. Hydrol. Process., 28: 2324–2337.)
- Sarah Ledford, Ryan Gordon, and Kayla Christian present at the Fall AGU Meeting!
- Congratulations to Ryan Gordon for successfully defending his dissertation!
I am currently recruiting graduate students for Fall 2014. I am primarily looking for students to work on an NSF-funded research project entitled, "Groundwater-surface water interactions in tropical alpine catchments and their influence on sources and stability of water supply during glacial recession." You can read more about the project 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.
