Professor Wood works in the areas of hydroclimatology with an emphasis on land atmospheric interactions, terrestrial remote sensing, and seasonal hydrologic climate forecasts, including land-climate teleconnections. His modeling focuses on the terrestrial water and energy balances and fluxes over a range of spatial and temporal scales, and his remote-sensing research focuses on estimating the hydrologic and energetic states of the terrestrial system, and on validating satellite retrievals on land surface states. These modeling and remote sensing activities are complemented through several field experiments in the U.S. and Canada.
