Short Workshop:

Hydroclimatic variability in the Wasatch: Bridging research and management

Wednesday, April 15, 2015 - Layton, UT

Above: Tree-ring reconstruction of annual flow of the Bear River, 800–2010, smoothed to emphasize decadal-scale variability


The Western Water Assessment (WWA) and the Wasatch Dendroclimatology Research (WADR) Group—a joint effort of USU, BYU, and US Forest Service scientists—conducted a short workshop to to support the application of multi-century tree-ring reconstructions in water management in northern Utah. Over 30 water managers, researchers, and others participated in the workshop.
