Major components of hydrological cycle - rainfall, runoff, infiltration, groundwater and surface storage

In the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Michigan State University, faculty and students are actively engaged in cutting edge research, curriculum innovation, international exchange, and public outreach.

Our research is multidisciplinary in nature and we strive for an appropriate balance between theory, computation, and experimental observation at both the laboratory and field-scale. Faculty research interests cover issues in surface water hydrology, groundwater hydrology, and contaminant fate and transport modeling. Active areas of research include: :

  • GIS-based modeling of watershed-scale processes
  • advanced environmental visualization
  • contaminant transport in heterogeneous media
  • environmental and geophysical fluid dynamics
  • the development of coupled physical, chemical and biological models
  • multi-scale modeling of complex environmental systems
