Water and air quality in the coastal environment

Shoreline Protections using EM2 Geomodel tool 

Storm surge caused by hurricanes and tropical storms along Texas Coast removes large quantities of sand from the shoreline, erodes significant land area and destroys properties. At Lamar, EM2 Geomodel is applied to investigate shoreline protection solutions that include river and geologic processes. This allows simulation of wave motion and the associated shoreline response, which enables development of shoreline sediment transport models for assessing large scale shoreline erosion.

Water Resource Management Using Wireless Sensor Network

This development is attempt to accomplish a transformative change in water resource management through application of state-of-the-art Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) technology, and to apply real-time and large-scale heterogeneous water quantity and quality data collected through the WSN to develop, calibrate and validate water quantity and quality models, and to characterize interactions among water resources, climate changes, and human impacts thus providing more accurate prediction for water resource management under different climate scenarios.
