We are an energetic team of researchers dedicated to the use of quantitative tools to understanding:
- Coupled water, energy, and nutrient dynamics at local to regional scales,
- Feedbacks between land management policy and regional hydroclimate, and
- Impacts of coupled human-ecohydrologic systems on sustainability of ecosystem services.
Our observational tools include in situ instrumentation and remote sensing data. We use models ranging from statistical models to complex, computationally intensive platforms that simulate coupled land-atmosphere dynamics. Please see press releases about some of our ongoing projects:
- Idaho State Department of Agriculture Wine Terroir Explorer (PI)
- NASA Terrestrial Hydrology Program (PI)
- NSF CAREER: Citizens, conservation, and climate (PI)
- NASA EPSCoR: Monitoring the hydrosphere from space (PI)
- NASA Terrestrial Ecology Program (Co-PI)
- NSF Reynolds Creek Critical Zone Observatory (Co-PI)
- NASA EPSCoR Track 2: WC-WAVE (Co-PI)
- NASA EPSCoR Track 1: Managing Idaho’s Landscapes for Ecosystem Services (ID modeling lead)
