In this new publication, RHESSys was used to simulate future potential land cover and climate change impacts on inflow to a reservoir in NE Spain and the plausible implications for management strategies. Zabalza-Martínez, J., Vicente-Serrano, S.M., López-Moreno, J.I., Borràs Calvo, G., Savé, R., Pascual, D., Pla, E., Morán-Tejeda, E., Domínguez-Castro, F., Tague, C.L. (2018) TheContinue reading “New Publication in Water”
Given changing climate regimes and intensification of human modifications of the landscape, this new publication addresses the need for a better understanding of the influence of antecedent conditions on watershed function in the context of extreme climate events that disproportionately impact highly populated regions. McMillan, S.K., Wilson, H.F., Tague, C.L., Hanes, D.M., Inamdar, S., Karwan,Continue reading “New publication “Before the Storm””
In the new comment “Water sustainability and watershed storage – a comment” published in Nature Sustainability, the authors suggest re-thinking the traditional forest water sustainability question to include how watershed storage and forest access to that storage influence the water cycle. McDonnell, J.J., Evaristo, J., Bladon, K.D., Buttle, J., Creed, I.F., Dymond, S.F., Grant, G., Iroume, A.,Continue reading “Re-thinking the paired watershed approach from the bottom up”
The essay “Wildfires are inevitable – increasing home losses, fatalities and costs are not” by Max Moritz, Naomi Tague, and Sarah Anderson published earlier this month in The Conversation has been picked up and widely distributed by a number of other publications as well: Scientific American Heavy.com Sun Journal Science Alert Homeland Security Newswire Phys.orgContinue reading “The news is spreading!”
Naomi Tague was a contributing author to California’s Fourth Climate Change Assessment: Central Coast Region Report, which was released this week along with a release event by the California Adaption Forum (CAF).
Naomi Tague, Max Moritz, and Sarah Anderson were just published in The Conversation about their research on the salience of wildfire and the dangers of disaster-driven responses, which argues that big shifts from thinking about fighting wildfire to living with it need to be made.
“Forewarned is forearmed” Naomi Tague was interviewed about using RHESSys to model fire spread in the Science and Technology section of The Economist for the article “Software can model how a wildfire will spread“.
New publication “The dangers of disaster-driven responses to climate change” just published in Nature Climate Change from Sarah E. Anderson, Ryan R. Bart, Maureen C. Kennedy, Andrew J. MacDonald, Max A. Moritz, Andrew J. Plantinga, Christina L. Tague and Matthew Wibbenmeyer.
The research in this new publication enhances understanding of deep subsurface water storage across landscapes and identifies key remaining challenges in predicting and managing response to climate and land use change in mountain ecosystems of the Sierra Nevada and in other Mediterranean climates worldwide. Klos, P.Z., Goulden, M.L., Riebe, C.S., Tague, C.L., O’Geen, A.T., Flinchum,Continue reading “Plant response to changes in subsurface water – new publication”
In this new publication, regional regression models using a set of three variables (mean annual precipitation, potential evapotranspiration, and baseflow index) selected via expert assessment was found to be effective in predicting percentile flows and performed similarly to larger sets of variables selected using a data-driven method.
