Faruk Djodjic
My research explores mobilization and transport of nutrients from land to water with focus on agricultural landscape.


Current research activities include

  • Nutrient mobilization and transport at various scales
  • Hydrology-chemistry interactions and effects on sediment and nutrient losses
  • Modeling nutrients transport and source-apportionment
  • Tools for risk assessment of erosion and nutrient losses
  • Modeling spatial distribution of erosion and phosphorus losses and identification of variable source areas
  • Agricultural Best Management Practices for reduction of nutrient losses
