About Us

Our research will support the emerging spectrum of environmental issues throughout cold regions, applying remote sensing methods and mathematical modeling. We study the response of cold region hydrology related to changing the climate, such as lake ice, snow cover, land cover incorporate satellite observations of surface and subsurface processes in mesoscale numerical models. Our current areas of interest include the development of statistical modeling and machine learning of the relationship between ice extent, environmental drivers, and water quality, the response of lakes to contemporary and projected climate conditions.
