Title: Improving Hydrologic Sustainability of Texas A&M University Campus
Texas A&M students are collecting rainfall, runoff, and environmental data and simulating hydrologic conditions to quantify storm water runoff impacts on campus. Storm water management plans are developed using new hydrologic sustainability metrics, such as the Hydrologic Footprint Residence (HFR), which captures the change in the downstream floodplain and the duration of the floods residence.
