Professor Emeritus Jack Delleur is the recipient of the 2007 Ray K. Linsley Award. This award was established in 1986 to recognize individuals who have made outstanding contributions in surface water hydrology.
Understanding what lies beneath surface waters can provide a healthier environment
Posted: February 7, 2007
Assistant Professor Cary Troy's research on internal waves offers a better understanding of the mixing caused by underwater waves which will help to aid in predicting the vertical movement of nutrients, pollutants, and biota within the water. This study of internal waves can affect the quality of drinking water taken from large lakes such as Lake Michigan.
Ending Water Shortages
Posted: February 7, 2007
More than 1 billion people lack access to safe drinking water and Dr. Venkatesh Merwade's research, which includes the study of hydrologic information systems, flow and stage network optimization, assessment of groundwater and surface water interactions on the quantity and quality of water and in-stream flow studies, will aid countries world wide with the shortage of adequate water supply.

Posted: October 2, 2006
The Purdue University board of trustees approved the appointment of Professor R.S. Govindaraju as the Christopher B. and Susan S. Burke Professor of Civil Engineering effective September 29, 2006. Govindaraju specializes in the hydraulics and hydrology area.
Watershed models used for hydrological processes
Posted: August 3, 2006
Management of sediments and associated contaminant losses over watersheds is an important problem for hydrologists and environmental engineers. Drs. Mazdak Arabi, Bernie Engel and Rao Govindaraju are very interested in establishing the benefits of best management practices (BMPs) in watersheds. By using state-of-the-art modeling tools and optimization methods, they answer two important questions (i) which BMP should be selected, and (ii) where should it be placed in a watershed, so that the best possible results are obtained for meeting water quality standards while minimizing costs. They have also been utilizing uncertainty analysis tools to account for various errors that are inherent in models.
