Description

The geoscience department weekly seminar presents:

Speaker: Dr. Bethany Coulthard

Topic: Snow, Streamflow, and High-Resolution Paleohydrology in Western North America

The western North American hydrological cycle is intensifying as a result of anthropogenic climate change, with widespread consequences for extreme event (flood and drought) risk and water supply management. In this talk I will review research in the Hydrology, Tree Rings, and Climate (HYTRAC) Lab over the past 2.5 years that addresses this problem using high-resolution paleohydrology, including: 1) the development of the North American Paleosnow Network; 2) new insights on North American snow drought dynamics using the Western Cordilleran Snow Atlas, and 3) flood and drought risk in hydroclimatically complex watersheds.
