We are hydrologists who work at the intersection of watershed hydrology, ecohydrology, critical zone science, and land-atmosphere interactions.  We study the water and carbon cycles, as well as the fate and transport of other nutrients and pollutants – all in the context of watersheds.  We investigate feedbacks among the geosphere, the hydrosphere, the biosphere, and the atmosphere, from the scale of single plots to the watershed and regional scales.  We use field based and modeling approaches to examine how the morphological template imposed by the landscape mediates interactions and feedbacks among physical and biological processes.
