Welcome to the Virginia Tech Watershed Hydrology Lab website. The lab is directed by Dr. Kevin McGuire. Thanks for checking us out!
RESEARCH TOPICS: Watershed, hillslope, and forest hydrology; runoff generation processes; tracer and isotope applications in hydrology; land use and climate change effects on watershed processes and water quality; forest watershed management and effectiveness of best management practices; and interactions between hydrology and biogeochemistry.
