Graduate Hydrosystems Seminar

Headshot of DanicaASU Center for Biodiversity Outcomes Postdoctoral Research Associate Danica Schaffer-Smith will present a talk entitled “Risks and opportunities: can we improve water quality and reduce catastrophic flooding in the Cape Fear River Watershed, North Carolina under ongoing climate change?” as part of the CEE 591: Graduate Hydrosystems Seminar. Danica is a current NatureNet Science Fellow examining the use of nature-based strategies to address nutrient pollution and flooding in Eastern North Carolina using remote sensing and watershed modelling methods, in collaboration with the Nature Conservancy North Carolina. The Cape Fear River Watershed has been visited by three 500-year storms within two years, exacerbating water quality issues associated with recent rapid urbanization and intensified agriculture. Danica will be visiting ASU from January 14-25, 2019. Please contact her directly at [email protected] if you would like to schedule a meeting.
