Dr. George Allen studies freshwater resources using remote sensing, models, geospatial analysis, and fieldwork. In particular, he is interested in the impacts of climate and land-use change on river systems at the global scale. His work is motivated by questions like: How much water do Earth’s rivers transmit downstream, and how is that quantity changing? How much greenhouse gas do rivers and streams emit to the atmosphere? And how can we use remote sensing to improve real-time flood mitigation?

Ongoing research projects include mapping river and stream inundation area globally, investigating potential synergism of multi-sensor fusion in hydrology, and assimilation of virtual gauge station data into large-scale hydrologic models. Dr. Allen helps to create geospatial products to improve our ability to predict floods and quantify biogeochemical processes. He also is investigating using remote sensing to track plastic debris in freshwater bodies.

Dr. Allen is actively recruiting MS and PhD graduate students to join the Global Rivers Group at Texas A&M. If you are interested, check out the research site and send Dr. Allen an email if you have questions
