7. Sustainable Groundwater, Surface Water and Urban Water Infrastructure under Changing Population, Climate, Energy and Land Use:
Integrated surface and subsurface water resource investigations using computational models, big data, novel experimentation, field investigation, and next generation in situ and remote sensing observations using sensor networks, drones, and low earth orbiting satellites. Climatologic, hydrologic, and environmental modeling of large urban areas; use of sensor networks to assess water and energy use, and environmental health. Possible areas of study may include: emerging challenges associated with competing water uses in a regional or global context; critical zone science approaches to water sustainability, carbon/nutrient cycling, and reactive and biological transport; urban water sustainability and risk management including impact of green infrastructure, interaction of urban areas with rivers and coastal zones, flood hazards, drought, and pollution control.
