DR. ARADHNA TRIPATI: Bringing Together Diverse Perspectives on Water
October 5 @ 3:00 pm – 4:15 pm EDT
Although the availability of freshwater is a major factor influencing humans and ecosystems, the ways in which water availability will change in many parts of our warming world in the future is unknown. Exploration of past and present-day environments and uses and understandings of water can provide critical information, transforming our ability to understand the processes impacting water and our relationship to water and each other. Dr. Tripati, a professor in the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability at UCLA, will describe a research project that braids together different strands of research from multiple disciplines on the water cycle and climate in the water-stressed Southwestern U.S. Science Convocation.
