“Eco-informatics for understanding the eco-hydrology of disturbance-dominated ecosystems”

Seminar
Professor Naomi Tague, Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, University of California Santa Barbara, will give a seminar with the aforementioned title.

Abstract:

"The eco-hydrology of disturbance-driven ecosystems reflects complex interactions among a dynamic ecosystem structure and climate. Human modifications to these systems add an additional driver of change. Eco-informatics integrates process-based modeling and diverse data sets and can provide insight into the behavior of these coupled-human natural systems. Fire-dominated Mediterranean ecosystems offer a classic example where, in addition to the impacts of a warming climate and droughts, these coupled models show how fuel treatments may sometimes lead to unintended consequences for water supply, and future vegetation carbon and nitrogen cycling. Similar applications in urban and other disturbance dominated systems are needed to better utilize findings from a rich and evolving science of eco-hydrology and the societal systems that influence it."
