Bio

Dr. Jha's research and teaching interest are in the fields of water resources and environmental engineering. He has developed and applied various field to watershed scale models to extend the boundaries of our knowledge and understand impacts of land use and climate change on hydrology, water availability, water quality.

Research Interests

Water Cycle, Field and Watershed Modeling, Water Resources Engineering and Management, Climate Change and Land Use Change Impacts on Hydrology and Water Resources, Evaluation of BMPs for Sediment and Nutrients, Extreme Hydrological Events (Floods and Droughts), Uncertainties in Modeling and Assessment
