This new publication uses empirical streamflow data from watersheds across the western US to build on our earlier working using RHESSys that demonstrated how spatial differences in underlying geology can play an important role in influencing how streamflow responds to changes in climate

Tague contributed to this review that highlights current tools for evaluating post-fire effects- and thinking about next steps. Our work with RHESSys and collaborators as part of the Western Mountain Initiative contribute to some of these next steps by linking fire-spread models with RHESSys to explore how patterns of fire and effects on hydrology and carbon cycling in the Western US may change in the coming decades

The Tague EcoHydrology lab focuses on watershed research, addressing the feedbacks among terrestrial vegetation, surface hydrological processes, and atmospheric conditions. We use a variety of techniques to examine the impact of changes in climate and land use on ecosystem health and water resources.
