Watershed LLC research will focus on water management, conservation, and the environmental processes associated with rainfall such as soil erosion, flood generation, and vegetation community establishment. Students will install advanced instrumentation for watershed monitoring, conduct experiments to test soil and water conservation practices, and evaluate plans for both urban and rural storm-water management. Students will combine extensive fieldwork, data management and visualization, and statistical analyses to gain insight into processes that control water availability and our society's ability to exist in a rapidly changing semi-arid environment.
