This GradCAP webinar will feature presentations on sustainable watershed utilization, changing soil moisture on farms, and shifting bird habitats.
The GradCAP Scholars presenting within this session include Manashi Paul from the University of Maryland, Sonja Birthisel from the University of Maine, and Gordon Dimmig from West Virginia University. Manashi Paul will share her work on how hydrologic modeling can be integrated to aid in sustainable water reuse (especially in water-stressed watersheds). Sonja Birthisel will discuss how changing precipitation patterns are effecting the number of days suitable for agricultural fieldwork. And Gordon Dimmig will detail his work focused on avian temporal dynamics on a central Appalachian elevation gradient.
