My current research effort is analyzing drought resiliency and recovery in the southwest U.S. through the utilization of eddy covariance flux tower, spatially distributed meteorological, and remotely sensed data. The primary objective is to better understand the variability for which sites respond to drought based on precipitation timing, climate, and land cover. Completing this objective will provide local water resource managers more accurate information on anticipated impacts of a drought scenario and post scenario recovery time.
