Ecology Department Core Capability - HydroEcology and
Water Management

The HEADS research focus area has established a strong track record in the rapidly growing, new subject area of Ecological Engineering. The term “hydroecological engineering” signifies the group’s concentration on water resources and wastewater engineering. Recognizing the growth in the field of environmental informatics and the application of computer-based models in the development of decision support systems, the group is active in this niche area. Interest in decision support interfaces well with the group’s expertise in the deployment of real-time flow and water quality sensors, rapid laboratory assessment techniques, and mathematical models to develop an early warning system for contaminant management and containment.
