In the upcoming February 2023 special issue on Women in Hydrology in the Journal of Hydrology, author Holly R. Barnard (Department of Geography, University of Colorado, Boulder) reviewed the competitive funding landscape and gives some advice on navigating the process, learned from her own experiences and from other women in science – including Naomi TagueContinue reading “Commentary & advice on research funding”
This new publication looks at the consequences of changing snowpacks on forest water stress by using the RHESSys model to explore how a tree’s position (upslope or riparian) on a hillslope influences its drought response. Graup, L.J., Tague, C.L., Harpold, A.A., Krogh, S.A. (2022) Subsurface lateral flows buffer riparian water stress against snow drought, JournalContinue reading “New Publication – Tree response to Snow Drought”

Please join us in congratulating William D. Burke – that is Dr. Burke – on the successful defense of his PhD thesis! Well done!
Tague Team Lab member, PhD student William Burke, will present his dissertation defense “Modeling the Interconnected Effects of Fuel Treatments on Forests, Water, and Fire” on Wednesday, May 25, 2022, at 2:00 pm in Bren Hall 3526 (Pine Room), or watch online using this link and passcode fire.
Congratulations to our own Tague Team Lab member – PhD student Rachel Torres – on receiving the Graduate Student Association Excellence in Teaching Award, recognizing her outstanding work for teaching and mentoring students in Earth System Science and Environmental Modeling at the Bren School, and Introduction to Environmental Science for the UCSB Environmental Studies department.
