MARYLAND REFORESTATION RESEARCH
provided by:


Dr. Keith N. Eshleman is presently an associate professor in the University of Maryland, Center for Environmental Science based at Appalachian Laboratory in Frostburg, Maryland. Trained as a hydrologist with an M.S. degree in civil engineering and a Ph.D. in water resources from M.I.T., Dr. Eshleman and his research team conduct experimental studies of water distribution, movement, and quality, primarily on small watersheds in the eastern United States.

    The majority of Dr. Eshleman's research projects has focused on the measurement and modeling of human and natural modifications of hydrological processes at the watershed scale.

Examples include recent field-based research projects on:

  1. watershed acidification,

  2. effects of forest disturbances on nitrogen transport and transformation, and

  3. exacerbation of stormflow responses of lands subjected to surface mining and  reclamation practices.

    Dr. Eshleman has published more than 40 peer-reviewed articles during his career and recently co-authored an undergraduate hydrology textbook entitled "Elements of Physical Hydrology".
