Postdoctoral scholar and Tague Team Lab member Erin Hanan, with UCSB Professor Dr. Andrew Plantinga, are presenting “What is the impact of Wildfire on our Ecology and Economy?” at the Gaucho Grown Showcase, a Gaucho Professional Network event, on April 28th.
Last week, Tague Team Lab members Erin Hanan and Ryan Bart presented their research at the 2017 Conference on Fire Prediction Across Scales, a Columbia University Initiative on Extreme Weather and Climate event. Bart’s presentation: Development of a coupled model for investigating the effects of forest management and climate on wildfire regimes in the westernContinue reading “Lab members present at Fire Prediction Conference”
Let’s Talk About Water – The Challenge of Water Management in the West. Come for an evening of short film screenings, a Bren School faculty panel (Naomi Tague, Jeff Dozier, Arturo Keller, Samantha Stevenson and Bob Wilkinson), UC Santa Barbara graduate student flash talks, and discussion with local water practitioners and environmental groups to exploreContinue reading “Let’s Talk About Water – Film and Discussion”
Last month Naomi Tague presented “Forest responses to drought, climate warming and fire – is there a role for density reduction?” at the Instituto Pirenaico de Ecología (IPE-CSIC) in Huesca, Spain. She met with researchers to introduce the use of RHESSys-Fire as a tool to investigate the impacts that potential thinning strategies may have onContinue reading “RHESSys-Fire Presentation”
Last month Naomi Tague gave the invited talk “Managing Forests, Water & Fire in the Face of Increasing Drought Frequency and Severity”at Duke university as part of their Division of Earth and Ocean Sciences Spring Seminar Series.
Xiaoli Chen successfully defended his dissertation titled “Factors affecting the streamflow and in-stream nitrate concentration in semi-arid areas: sub-surface flow-generation, vertical distribution of soil nitrate and drainage properties, and the connectivity of impervious areas” on Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2017, and can now answer to the title of Dr. Chen. Xiaoli has been a valuable memberContinue reading “Congratulations Dr. Chen!”
Last month, Dr. Naomi Tague presented research on ecosystem responses to drought and the management practice of forest thinning in the presentation”The eco-hydrology of forest density reduction” at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel. Presentation Abstract Weizmann Institute
Naomi Tague presented “How above-ground forest structure and below-ground water storage interact to determine forest sensitivity to changes in climate and forest management practices” last week as part of the Water Resources Graduate Program‘s winter seminar at Oregon State University.
