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
