research activities

Jasmeet Lamba’s research centers on addressing issues related to environmental and agricultural sustainability using field and laboratory based experiments and watershed-level modeling. Within this broad framework, he conducts research in the area of sediment fingerprinting; environmental fate and transport of sediment and phosphorus within a watershed; waste management; in-stream sediment/nutrient dynamics.
