Fields of interest
Computational fluid mechanics, hydrodynamic and water quality model development;

Coupling of multiple system models (biological, chemical, ecological and geophysical);

Climate/Sea Level or land use change impacts on river, lake, estuarine and coastal systems;

Linkage of models with policy makers (EPA, NOAA, State Agency) to improve health, changes in water quality and ecological resources. Models have focused on water pollution, Clean Water Act and Total Maximum Daily Loads, and fishery recruitment.
Description of scientific projects
Dr. Xia is developing the numerical model to investigate the response of estuarine and coastal ocean to the climate change including the sea level rise.
