Interests and Research
Paul Schulte's research interests are concerned with multiphase processes as they relate to heat and mass transfer in the land/atmosphere interface. His main focus is the design and development of experimental test beds to simulate atmospheric and subsurface environments and their interactions, including sensor and data acquisition networks.
