Scenes from the Watershed Hydrology Laboratory

Welcome to the URI Watershed Hydrology Laboratory

Our Goal:

To protect and restore water quality through research and education on watershed processes.

What We Study:

  • Understanding the role of nitrogen "sinks", including riparian areas, streams and reservoirs, on the landscape reducing the export of nitrate from coastal watersheds.
  • Understanding the role of watershed features and human activities on streamflow regimes.
