Tague Team Lab
Ecohydrology Research Lab based at the University of California Santa Barbara’s Bren School of Environmental Science and Management.
- RHESSys-Fire used in CA scoping plan in fight against climate changeRHESSys-Fire was used as part of the California Air Resources Board draft Scoping plan for fighting climate change. RHESSys-Fire contributions were lead by Ryan Bart (UC Merced).
- New publication explores when fire regimes shift from flammability- to fuel-limitedIn this new publication, RHESSys-WMFire is used to address the overarching question: How does vegetation modulate the effects of climate change on fire regimes in a semiarid watershed? More specificallyContinue reading “New publication explores when fire regimes shift from flammability- to fuel-limited”
- 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”
