AWAE engineers investigate and develop new knowledge to solve technological problems related to soil, water use, water conservation, water quality, soil conservation, irrigation/drainage, water management and soil-plant-water relationships. Research seeks to understand physical processes such as infiltration, overland flow, and soil erosion; provide effective mitigation techniques in disturbed forests and rangelands; and, develop predictive models and decision support tools for use by land managers. AWAE engineers have also developed predictive modeling software to aid wildland fire management. Please see a bibliography for examples of recent research projects.
