Research

Steve Lyon's research centers on identifying the underlying physical processes that determine how landscapes and water interact across scales and coevolve with time. Unraveling these feedbacks has significant implications for the viability of climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies associated with the current and future sustainability of coupled terrestrial and aquatic systems.

 

Teaching

  • Information and modeling systems for land and water resources (GE7006)
  • Local to global water vulnerability and resilience (GE7025)
  • How to use Matlab to solve problems in environmental, climatological, and earth science research (BBCC PhD Course)
  • Ecohydrology: a Mediterranean perspective (GE7049)
  • Reoccurring guest lecturer in Hydrology and Hydrogeology (GE5004), Biogeochemical Cycles (MO7013), Urbanization and Environment (KG7204) and several other courses
