Hydrologic Modeling for Agricultural Issues and Storm Water Permitting Services
Performed field investigation of water, solute mass balance for watershed in northern California. Investigated water quality problems in Tule Lake and the impact of agricultural irrigation and drainage systems to wildlife. Developed a unique buffer zone separating agricultural systems from a wildlife refuge by using a high rate algae pond and marshlands. Modeled effect of irrigation techniques on selenium transport and volatilization for the Kesterson Reservoir in California.
- Developed a water budget program, using California Irrigation Information System data, to estimate drainage in a field-scale experiment.
- Performed computer modeling for water, solute movement, chemical equilibrium, and statistical analyses.
- Used experimental and California Irrigation Information System data in modeling solute transport with LEACHM program.
