Lab members present at Fire Prediction Conference

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 western U.S.

Hanan’s presentation: Effects of fire suppression and climate change on wildfire activity in the Pacific Northwest

Hanan’s poster: Using remote sensing to account for disturbance history in process-based, carbon cycling models

Let’s Talk About Water – Film and Discussion

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 explore both the problems and solutions for water management in the American West, and how UC Santa Barbara is answering the call.

Please join us for this free event on November 2 from 6:00-8:00 pm, in UCSB Bren Hall 1414, and the reception that follows.

Tague invited talk

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.

Congratulations Dr. Chen!

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 member of the Tague Team Lab and has greatly contributed to the labs body of research as well as model development.
