David Tarboton is Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the Utah Water Research Laboratory at Utah State University and adjunct in the Watershed Sciences and Geology departments. He has degrees from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Natal in South Africa. He teaches Hydrology and Geographic Information Systems in Water Resources. His research is in the area of surface water hydrology focused on advancing the capability for hydrologic prediction by developing models that take advantage of new information and process understanding enabled by new technology. This includes the development of hydrologic information systems that support the online publication of hydrologic information and software for integration of information from multiple sources to advance integrative hydrologic understanding. He also works with geographic information systems and digital elevation models that take advantage of spatially distributed information for hydrologic prediction. He has contributed to advances in terrain analysis for hydrology, terrain stability mapping and stream sediment inputs, geomorphology, stochastic and nonparametric statistical methods in hydrology, and snow hydrology. He has developed software for terrain analysis and channel network extraction, terrain stability mapping and a snowmelt model. These are free and open source and available from his website. He is a Registered Professional Engineer in the State of Utah and is a member of the American Geophysical Union, the American Society of Civil Engineers, and the American Water Resources Association.
