Dr. Taufique Mahmood is an associate professor in the Harold Hamm School of Geology and Geological Engineering (HHGGE) at the University of North Dakota. He holds a Ph.D. in Geological Sciences (Hydrology) from Arizona State University (2012) and an M.S. in Engineering Science from the University of Mississippi (2006). Prior to joining at UND, Taufique was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Saskatchewan. His group’s research works have been searching the answers of few critical science questions in cold and continental climates of Northern Great Plain (NGP), Rocky Mountain Range and High Mountain Asia (HMA) using field-based and remotely sensed observations and high-resolution physically-based modeling. My graduate students are currently investigating the mechanisms of hydrologic changes to recent wetting (2002-2018), wetland dynamics and nutrient export in a terminal lake basin (Devils Lake Basin). He also has research experiences in both agricultural (Northern Great Plain & Canadian Prairies) and mountainous landscapes (New Mexico and Arizona) at scales ranging from hillslope to large watershed. Further, he has dealt with the water and climate issues in the southern Rockies (northern New Mexico) and the Northern Prairies (~excess water system) in his recent publications. Highlights of his other research works include monitoring and assessment of beneficial management practices on agricultural hydrology and water quality, developing a conceptual model for nutrient transport, spatial controls on the watershed and hillslope scale hydrologic responses (northern New Mexico) and geologic mapping from remotely sensed imagery. Dr. Mahmood teaches Groundwater monitoring and Remediation, Cold Region Hydrologic Modeling and Water Sampling and Analyses courses in the HHGGE.
