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.
- Our paper on modeling sources of salinity in groundwater prior to hydraulic fracturing is accepted for publication in ES&T!
- Another field campaign in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru is complete!
- 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.)
