Dr. Rocky Durrans’ main research emphasis lies in development and application of probabilistic and statistical methods for civil and environmental engineering problems. His specific focus has been on statistical modeling of hydrologic and meteorologic extremes, including floods, low-flows (droughts), and extreme precipitation. Research projects and public service activities include hydrologic and meteorologic extremes with prediction of flood frequency relationships downstream of regulating structures and with assessment of the potential effects of climatic change and climatic variability.
