Advancing the understanding of human connections to fresh waters


Fresh water is critical to human survival and yet we continue to use and degrade this resource directly through mismanagement and indirectly through changes to the global climate system and unsustainable land use.  Our work highlights these connections through investigations into the biogeochemistry of watersheds around the world, using advanced field techniques, geospatial modeling  and satellite based remote sensing.
