Congratulations to TagueTeamLab collaborator and friend Dr. Maureen Kennedy – Assistant Professor, University of Washington Tacoma, School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences, Division of Sciences and Mathematics – on her newly granted tenure last month! Dr. Kennedy incorporated fire spread modeling into the RHESSys model = RHESSys-Fire.
This new publication from Burke et al. uses RHESSys to model effects across a range of variables.
The authors examine urban energy flux variability across landcover and climate gradients of urbanized Los Angeles County.
Naomi Tague and James Frew outline a framework for increasing the usefulness of ecohydrologic models through better visualization.
David Miller presented his defense entitled “Remote Sensing of Urban Vegetation during Drought in Southern California” on December 4th.
Last week, Naomi Tague presented “Understanding forests in a warming world through model-data integration” at Feeding the Drylands Conference.
Dr. Erin Hanan wrote a timely commentary addresses the debate on fires in the West.
This research highlights how runoff losses/gains due to changes in snow dynamics as a result of climate change are mediated by site specific conditions.
Longtime Tague Team Lab collaborator Don McKenzie just published a new book – a great, accessible, science book for the public introduction to the mountains we study and enjoy so much.
In this April Ecohydrology publication, “Fuels treatment and wildfire effects on runoff from Sierra Nevada mixed‐conifer forests” – RHESSys, constrained with spatially distributed field measurements, was used to assess the impacts of forest‐fuel treatments and wildfire on hydrologic fluxes in two Sierra Nevada firesheds. Saksa, P.C., Bales, R.C., Tague, C.L., Battles, J.J., Tobin, B.W., Conklin, M.H. (2019)Continue reading “New Pub! Impacts of forest‐fuel treatments and wildfire on hydrologic fluxes in the Sierra Nevada”
