The Forman Research Group focuses on the use of satellite measurements from space to study freshwater on the Earth's surface. This research utilizes advanced, computer-driven hydrologic models in conjunction with ground-, airborne-, and satellite-based instrumentation. The overarching goal of this research is to improve scientific understanding of the quantity, movement, and timing of freshwater so that this vital resource may be better managed and preserved.
