Prof. Diego Riveros-Iregui, PhD

Assistant Professor, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Department of Geography, USA

Research Interests:

  • Hydrological and geochemical transport in the soil and the stream
  • Plant and microbial activities and resulting land-atmosphere exchange of gases such as CO2
    and CH4 in forests and wetlands
  • Hydrologic controls in space and time over land-atmosphere interactions
  • Ecohydrology
  • Tropical Hydrology
