Hydrometeorology Research Group

The Hydrometeorology group works at the interface of hydrology and meteorology. The group focuses on the measurement, analysis and modeling of atmospheric and land surface processes tied to the hydrologic cycle. Areas of special interest of the group are radar rainfall estimates of extreme rainfall, flash floods especially in urban areas, atmospheric properties of the most extreme rainfall and rainfall properties of land-falling tropical storms.


Environmental Monitoring Stations

The Hydrometeorology Lab maintains five stations around Princeton University campus. The data from these stations are used by students and professors to gain insight into the impact of suburban development on different environmental paramters. These data loggers act as part of the Campus as a Lab initiative. Below is a map of the locations of these stations (red dots).
