Hydrology and Watershed Processes
|View of the Lamar River, Yellowstone NP WY Stretch Segment.
Overview. Hydrology is the study of waters and water flow. Within the Department of Earth Sciences at Dartmouth College, faculty specialize in the quantitative hydrologic models and the connection the transport of reactive and non-reactive solutes. Dr. Renshaw examines the development of fractured groundwater systems and fluid flow through them, and the hydrology and transport of contaminants. Dr. Feng uses groundwater and streamwater compositions in conjunction with stable isotopes to trace groundwater flow, and to examine the effect of emporal and spatial heterogeneity on fluid flow. Dr. Dade examines particle and sediment transport in surface waters. More details about their research and research methods are available below.
