Danielle Tijerina’s Research Showcase: Contemplations on large-scale hydrologic modeling

Wednesday, Aug 19, 2020

I recently found myself reviewing the opening chapter of my very first hydrology textbook—Physical Hydrology by S. Lawrence Dingman. Here, Dingman expresses that hydrology can be broadly described as having two principal focuses: 1) the global hydrologic cycle—studying quantity and distribution of water across components of the global water system and 2) the land phase of the hydrologic cycle. Dingman’s first focus is one of the main goals of continental-scale modeling. As I read this passage, I came to an exciting realization: the ideas I had learned about so early in my graduate studies outlined the importance of the large-scale hydrology research I would inevitably take on.
