Impacts of Climate Change on Water Resources
Sub areas - Surface water hydrology, climate modeling & scaling, conflict resolution, resource policy & economics, groundwater hydrology.
My goal is to determine the impacts of climate change on the hydrology of river systems and the ecological and human services that these systems provide. Of primary importance is the impact of climate change on the timing and volume of seasonal and annual streamflows, as well as its likely impacts on the frequency and magnitude of floods and droughts. Our research focuses on how to translate these changes in hydrology to impacts on water temperature, ecological system services, hydropower production, flood control, water supply, recreation, and navigation.
Water resources • streamflow • stream temperature • stream health • water supply systems • decision analysis
