Welcome to our group’s homepage. We study the hydrology, geomorphology, and biogeochemistry of landscapes and river systems and their links with humans and ecosystems.

Our group is part of the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences (E&ES) at New Mexico Tech. E&ES is a multidisciplinary department with faculty specializing in Hydrology, Geophysics, Geology, and Geochemistry.
