Andrea Leonard

M.S. Hydrologic Sciences Candidate

B.S.  Illinois State University,
Geology 2014


Research Topic

I am using the process-based crop model EPIC and agent-based models to simulate hydrology and agriculture in the Treasure Valley of southwest Idaho. By altering climate change projections and management decisions in the models, I will develop a suite of alternative future scenarios for the region that illustrate future agricultural water use and crop yield.
