Position

Land Surface Hydrology Research Group in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University, Princeton, USA.

Research interests

Primary interests are in hydroclimatology with emphasis on land-atmosphere interactions and hydrologic impacts from climate change. Estimation of the terrestrial moisture and energy budgets, the quantitative application of remote sensing to terrestrial hydrology and the detection and hydrologic impact of climate change are the primary areas of currect research. Stochastic hydrology, hydrologic forecasting and rainfall-runoff modeling, environmental data analysis and experimental design, are the other interests.

Prizes and awards

2007 EGU John Dalton Medallist "in recognition of his outstanding contribution towards integrating the Earth sciences into the science of hydrology."

1996 Fellow, American Meteorological Society
1993 Fellow, American Geophysical Union
1980 Rheinstein Award, Princeton University
