Hubbart, Jason

Professor of Physical Hydrology

Jason A. Hubbart serves as a professor of physical hydrology in the WVU Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design, Division of Forestry and Natural Resources (School of Natural Resources). He is the West Virginia gubernatorial appointee to the Science and Technical Advisory Committee of the Chesapeake Bay Program. Hubbart is a formally trained forest hydrologist and watershed hydrologist and conducts research investigating contemporary land use practices on physical hydrologic processes and climate regimes, environmental biophysics, water quality, floodplain-wetland-stream and shallow ground water interactions, hydrogeomorphology, and hydrologic modeling. He teaches and conducts research in the fields of hydrology, water resources, and environmental biophysics, and directs the Interdisciplinary Hydrology Laboratory (IHL). He has independently and in collaboration generated more than $40M in external grants, mentors’ post-docs, graduate (26 graduated) and undergraduate students, has published over 130 peer reviewed articles, authored over 250 conference presentations, and serves as an editor for PLOS Water, SWRM, and Water
