Maps of watershed characteristics for the Cosumnes Watershed

The Water Resources Ecohydrology Lab (WRElab) seeks to help better manage watersheds for the good of both people and nature in a shifting climate. To do so, we build new understanding of how watersheds function as systems, with interactions among meteorological forcing, geologic setting, and ecological process, and how these systems affect critical water resources. Our work uses state-of-the-science computational watershed and ecological simulators constrained with novel field and remotely-sensed measurements to predict the behavior of watersheds under different conditions and design watershed management practices to meet multiple objectives.

The WRElab is located at Northeastern University and is associated with the Department of Marine & Environmental Sciences and the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering
