Welcome to the Headwaters to Ocean (H2O) Research Collective in the School of Civil and Construction Engineering at the Oregon State Unviersity. We study the movement of water from high mountain environments to coastal areas. We use field measurements, remotely sensed data, and models to improve understanding of many components of the hydrologic cycle and of coastal water levels and currents. We collaborate with many ecologists and other scientists to advance understanding of how physical and ecological processes interact. Finally, we model the changes in snowpack, streamflow, and coastal hydraulics that result from a changing environmental forcing. Our recent work has been funded by NASA, National Geographic, NSF, and the North Pacific Research Board.
