Professors in Hydrology


Nel Caine's research interests are in the fields of present-day erosional and hydrologic processes in mountain environments and in mass wasting and slope development. Over the past 20 years, this has involved continuing work in the mountains of Colorado that is now incorporated into the Long-Term Ecological Research Program. It has also included work in the mountains of Tasmania,in central Europe, Nepal, and the Oregon Cascades.

John Pitlick, Ph.D., Colorado State, 1988, is an Associate Professor with research interests in fluvial geomorphology and hydrology. He and his students are currently funded by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to study how changes in the hyfrology and geomorphology of upper Colorado River have affected habitat used by endangered fishes. He continues to research the causes and hydrology of floods, recently completing a study of the 1993 Mississippi River floods. He is an Associate Editor for Water Resources Research. And, as best he can, he tries to keep up with rapidly evolving trends in the world of bluegrass music.

Mark Williams' research interests are the processes that determine the hydrology, hydrochemistry and biogeochemistry of high-elevation basins, including the storage and release of solutes from the snowpack, biogeochemical modifications of snowpack runoff, nutrient cycling, and hydrologic pathways and residence time. The majority of his research has been conducted in the Rocky Mountains, Sierra Nevada, the Tien Shan of central Asia, and South America.
