At the Baker Environmental Hydraulics Laboratory (BEHL), we experimentally study processes pertaining to the movement and interaction of water, sediment, vegetation, nutrients, contaminates, and manmade structures and machines in fluvial and estuarine systems - including both surface and groundwater. We are interested in understanding the basic dynamics of natural river and coastal systems as well as their interaction with mankind and the build environment.
