- New Pub: Remote sensing used to look at urban drought responseIn this new publication, functionally and seasonally distinctive remote sensing variables were used to quantify changes in urban vegetation canopy conditions during droughts. Miller, D.L., Alonzo, M., Meerdink, S.K., Allen,Continue reading “New Pub: Remote sensing used to look at urban drought response”

- Carbon/Water tradeoffs & management objectivesNew publication in Environmental Research used the RHESSys model to quantify the tradeoffs between carbon sequestration and water fluxes under different climate and land management scenarios in abandoned cropland areasContinue reading “Carbon/Water tradeoffs & management objectives”
- New publication characterises spatial variation in shallow soil moistureThe goal of this study was to characterise spatial variation in shallow soil moisture at the plot scale by relating the mean of measurements collected in a plot to theContinue reading “New publication characterises spatial variation in shallow soil moisture”
- Which mechanisms control the change in water yield following a beetle outbreak?In this new publication, RHESSys is used to explore the mechanisms that control the change in water yield following a beetle outbreak. Results indicate that the response to beetle-caused treeContinue reading “Which mechanisms control the change in water yield following a beetle outbreak?”
