- Modeling effects of long term management practices on water supplies after cropland abandonmentIn this publication, RHESSys was used to analyze long‐term changes and annual and seasonal trends in streamflow & transpiration following management strategies of abandoned cropland areas in the Mediterranean basin.Continue reading “Modeling effects of long term management practices on water supplies after cropland abandonment”
- What happens to ecosystem services after cropland abandonment?The study in this new publication used the RHESSys model to explore different treatment options after cropland abandonment – illustrating the need to take plant succession and hydrological dynamics intoContinue reading “What happens to ecosystem services after cropland abandonment?”
- New approach to vegetation-change water-balanceThis new publication highlights the importance of evaluating the combined effects of biomass-reduction on transpiration of the remaining vegetation along with streamflow, as the hydrologic responses of both are intricatelyContinue reading “New approach to vegetation-change water-balance”
- Research gains attentionRecent publication “How climate change and fire exclusion drive wildfire regimes at actionable scales” in Environmental Research Letters has gained attention and press coverage. Naomi Tague was interviewed by KCLU-NPRContinue reading “Research gains attention”
- New Publication: climate vs. fuel-limitations in watershed fire regimesIn this new publication “How climate change and fire exclusion drive wildfire regimes at actionable scales” , the authors modeled the drivers that dominate fire regimes at management-relevant scales, findingContinue reading “New Publication: climate vs. fuel-limitations in watershed fire regimes”
- New publication: interactions between biophysical & climatic parameters and fuel treatmentsThis new publication from Burke et al. uses RHESSys to model effects across a range of variables.
