Landscape System Response Under a Changing Climate
MetadataShow full item record
In this talk, Dr. Istanbulluoglu will: 1. Examine the effect of climate and "nature's engine" on resource/water management, impacting recreation, clean water, ecosystem, natural hazards, and irrigation. 2. Consider wildfire causes, including the role of temperature and snowmelt, and how these are predicted to be influenced by climate change. 3. Discuss wildfire impacts on surface processes, such as increase in runoff generation, landsliding, and erosion. 4. Present research on erosion, including numerical models of sediment yield, soil storage, climate forcing, gully erosion, sediment transport, landslides, debris flows, runoff generation, surface vegetation recovery, and basin response to fires. 5. Present vegetation simulation scenarios and numerical paired watershed experiment results.
