Lautz Hydrology Lab
My research group is interested in understanding how physical hydrologic processes influence water quality and movement through watersheds. We study how water moves through paired surface water and groundwater systems, heat tracing in hydrologic systems, and interactions between the energy and water cycles. We work on several specific interdisciplinary research projects, within which we used field experiments coupled with computer modeling experiments.
- Congratulations to Kayla Christian for successfully defending her MS thesis!
- 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!
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.
