Research and Outreach Projects
In collaboration with the California Institute for Water Resources, University of California academics provide solutions to address water-related issues in California. The Institute leverages federal investment to focus attention on the most critical water issues for the state. Currently funded projects include:
- Amanda Banet of CSU Chico is studying how exposure to high temperatures during incubation impacts the later health and survival of Pacific salmonids.
- Helen Dahlke of UC Davis is researching agricultural groundwater banking in alfalfa.
- Ted Grantham of UC Berkeley is analyzing how fish habitat responds to summer streamflow augmentation.
- Andrew Gray of UC Riverside is figuring out how debris flow management effects water quality.
- Amir Haghverdi of UC Riverside is using remote sensing techniques to see how turfgrass responds to different irrigation strategies.
- Eric Palkovacs of UC Santa Cruz is studying how habitat restoration impacts salmon and water management.
- Leah Stokes of UC Santa Cruz is evaluating variable success rates in water conservation policy during California's drought.
- Amelia Vankeuren of CSU Sacramento is analyzing groundwater dynamics after California drought.
