Welcome to the Watershed Hydrology Lab at Kent State University!

Headshot_AnneJefferson_smallforwebI’m Dr. Anne Jefferson, an associate professor in the Department of Geology. Research in my lab focuses on watershed hydrology, groundwater-surface water interactions, and landscape evolution in human-altered and volcanic landscapes. Current projects focus on green infrastructure, stormwater management, and stream restoration. Much of my research is field-based, but my group also makes use of stable isotope analyses, geographic information systems (GIS), and hydrologic modeling. Many recent projects have involved water quality and aquatic ecology components, typically collaborative in nature. I have expertise in fluvial geomorphology and landscape evolution, which implicitly and explicitly informs my research.
