Dr. Hogue’s research focuses on improving the understanding and prediction of hydrologic fluxes at a range of space and time scales.
Droughts, floods, urbanization, wildfires, climate variability and an escalating global population are creating scientific challenges on scales previously not encountered. Improving the understanding and prediction of a dynamic hydrologic cycle and its interface with a growing society is critical for addressing future water security and to reduce the detrimental impacts of land-cover change and natural hazards on watershed processes. Her work centers on the development and improvement of tools to better understand land-atmosphere interactions and improve the prediction of hydrologic processes, with a special focus on semi-arid regions. Various projects include: catchment response to wildfire, urbanization impacts on coupled eco-hydrologic systems, hydrologic modeling, remote-sensing of land surface properties, operational flood forecasting, and application of parameter estimation methods to hydrologic models.
