Welcome to the Hydrometeorology and Remote Sensing (HyDROS) Laboratory

The HyDROS laboratory is a proud part of the University of Oklahoma (OU). We are located in the National Weather Center (NWC), Norman, Oklahoma. The HyDROS Lab is associated with the Advanced Radar Research Center (ARRC), Water Technology for Emerging Regions Center (WaTER), and the School of Civil Engineering & Environmental Science (CEES). The HyDROS Lab is a transdisciplinary research unit with synergy at the interface of remote sensing technology, water, weather, and climate. Scales of interest for modeling and prediction include the local, state, regional and global scales.

The team has been with NSSL’s NOXP radar to coordinate operations with several other ground-based platforms as well as NASA’s ER-2 and UND’s Citation aircraft. Further, a number of developmental radar-based (MRMS) and hydrologic model-based (FLASH) products are being supplied to the experimental team for research and evaluation. The experiment runs from May 1 – June 15, 2014.

HyDROS' Grand Challenge is to observe and predict the storage, movement, and quality of water across space-time scales by integrating advanced sensing technology and numerical predictive models into an end-to-end research and application framework.

HyDROS' Mission is to propose technological solutions for mitigating the impacts of climate change and natural hazards through interdisciplinary research and education by using the latest remote sensing technology, information technology, and hydrological models in collaboration with private and public organizations at both local and international levels for the creation of a resilient society.

We will pursue our Grand Challenge and Mission through transdisciplinary research and education involving faculty, students, and scientists with Engineering, Sciences, Math, and Socioeconomic Sciences backgrounds as well as cooperation with universities, governmental agencies, private companies/industry, and international counterparts.

We are always looking for talented and enthusiastic students and researchers. We have advised students major in Civil Engineering, Hydrology (Water Resource Engineering), Environmental Science (Water Track), Geography, Meteorology, Computer Science and Geoinformatics.
