The Surface Dynamics Modeling Lab (SDML) strives to improve scientific understanding of planetary surface processes and dynamics through design and utilization of state-of-the-science numerical models. In order to address the immense complexity of surficial systems our research spans across spatial and temporal scales and scientific disciplines.
Established in 2012 as a research unit within the Department of Geography, SDML main research interests are:
- Large Scale Hydrology, Geomorphology, and Geochemistry Modeling
- Flood Forecasting and Mapping
- Soil-Landscape Evolution Modeling
- Landform Evolution Modeling
- Remote Sensing and Model Coupling
- Human Impact on Earth-surface Dynamics
