The Disturbance Hydrology Lab at San Diego State University (SDSU) focuses on understanding hydrologic change in coupled human-natural systems. Research seeks to improve predictions of hydrologic recovery in watersheds disturbed by anthropogenic activities (i.e. mitigation or restoration) and natural processes utilizing field studies, remote sensing, and modeling. Developed theories, methods, and models have significant regional and global implications, where rapid urbanization of wildlands is occurring. Our research includes fieldwork in the Sierra Nevada, urban creeks in San Diego, and burned landscapes in California and Colorado.
