Dr. Luo's primary research interests center on distributed numerical modeling of watershed hydrology including water quantity and quality issues. Using distributed data input of climate, vegetation, soil, morphology and geology, the model – LUOM (Luo, 2007) generates both lumped and distributed output such as precipitation, evapotranspiration, surface water depth, stream flow (discharge), infiltration, soil moisture, recharge to groundwater, and groundwater table. The model makes use of GIS as the pre- and post-process tool. The model is also capable to simulate sediment production on hill slopes and sediment transportation in the overland flow and stream flow, deposition on and erosion of the riverbed. The model application includes stream flow estimation, flood prediction, impacts of climate change, impacts of land use change/urbanization, and effects of forest management, etc.
