Floods And Droughts Inspire UVA's Husband-And-Wife Engineers
Mohamed Morsy and Bakinam Tarik Essawy are pioneering in hydroinformatics, a merging of hydrology and computer science in which vast fields of data are analyzed to create workable models.
Welcome Larry Band!
Lawrence E. Band, an eco-hydrologist known for his groundbreaking research on natural and urban watersheds and their role in mitigating and adapting to climate change, flooding and drought, and the provision of high-quality freshwater. While serving as the College’s Ernest H. Ern Professor of Environmental Sciences, Band also will hold a joint appointment in the School of Engineering and Applied Science’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
