Overview

OverviewText1

  • Dr Dongryeol Ryu is the Academic Program Coordinator of the Master of Engineering (Environmental) program. Dr Ryu is a Senior Lecturer in Environmental Hydrology and Water Resources (EHWR) in the Department of Infrastructure Engineering at The University of Melbourne. He leads the Hydrology and Remote Sensing group in the Department with a special interest in surface water hydrology and microwave remote sensing. Dr Ryu is currently working on developing microwave soil moisture retrieval algorithms and on investigating an innovative method of flood forecasting by using various satellite observations, which are funded by ARC. He is also a past recipient of a NASA Earth System Science Fellowship and the University of California, Irvine Medal.
