Greetings! Welcome to my professional web site. These pages are in transition and will expand as I write and edit material to post here.
Schedule: I'm available for contract work as a civil engineer and surface water hydrologist. My specialty is the numerical and statistical modeling of surface water hydrologic processes. That means I use hydrologic principles to analyze watershed behavior including flood hydrology and watershed yield. In addition, I am an expert with open channel hydraulics and the hydraulics of pipelines.

In addition, I have strong statistical analysis skills. I use the R-project open source software for data analysis and statistical modeling. I write scripts for repeated analysis when appropriate using R.
What's New: Changes to the web site will be noted here until new changes occur.

After eight years with R.O. Anderson Engineering, I am now operating as a private consultant. I continue to be associated with Texas Tech University as an adjunct professor and maintain my Texas connections. However, I'm available for contract work regardless of location.

Notes: These pages (my entire website) are hand-coded in XHTML and CSS using either vi, emacs, or BBEdit. There are no wussy code editors used here. :) Be sure to check out the Firefox standalone browser and support the open-source community. I am currently a Google Chrome user on both Macintosh and PC platforms. Yes, I drank the Kool-Aid.

Finally I gave up and removed the mail-to link on the right navbar to present my email address in a fashion that is not easily snagged by spammers. I've received too much spam already.
