Hydro-Meteorology

Hydro-Meteorology: Coupling between climate and hydrological models, hydrological downscaling, forecasting seasonal to decadal climate services.

Hydrodynamics

Hydrodynamics: Free-surface flow, unsteady flow, boundary layers, flow around structures, nearshore circulation, water-sediment interaction, pipe flow,
jets & mixing processes. 

Subsurface Hydrology

Subsurface Hydrology: Soil water and groundwater movement, arid soil management, measurement techniques, dielectric properties of soil and other porous materials, solute transport, macropore flow, soil salinity. 

Urban Hydrology

Urban Hydrology: Climate change effects on stormwater systems, green roofs, snowmelt in urban environments, stormwater in low income peri-urban areas, intense rains, open storm water management, green-blue infrastructure, sustainable cities.

Water Resources
