  • Climate change and human activities are increasing uncertainties in water resource management and natural disaster predictions. At our Hydro AI Lab, we use remote sensing, land surface models, and AI/machine learning to investigate the complex interactions between land surfaces and the atmosphere in response to climate change. Our goal is to improve the precision of natural disaster predictions and water resource management. We achieve this through the generation of new remote sensing datasets and algorithms, enhancement of surface models, and utilization of high-performance computing for global-scale land surface modeling.
