We are a computational hydrology research group in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Duke University. Our main objective is to quantify, understand, and predict the role of multi-scale spatial organization over land in the Earth system.
The Chaney lab focuses on three themes: 1) rethink land heterogeneity in Earth system models 2) harness environmental data to characterize the observed heterogeneity over land, and 3) assess the sensitivity of the water, energy, and biogeochemical cycles to land heterogeneity. The tools that we use include numerical modeling, satellite remote sensing, cluster analysis, supervised learning, and high performance computing
