Research Overview

Professor McCabe's research interests encompass the modeling and observation of the Earth's water cycle. This includes using satellite-based remote sensing and UAV approaches to derive products that quantify elements of the water cycle, together with efforts to develop and exploit in-situ monitoring networks to provide information for modeling and analysis of water resources in both natural and agricultural systems. Much of Matthew's research involves estimating and quantifying surface water stores and exchanges, with a focus on describing hydrometeorological dynamics across local, regional and global scales. An aim of this research is an effective use and integration of observations to improve the capacity to monitor, model and forecast hydrological events and processes, with applications in flood and drought estimation, water management of agricultural systems and the characterisation of a range of land surface processes.
