Watershed Ecosystem Science Cluster Funded through UBC Okanagan Eminence Program
November 13, 2020
The newly formed Watershed Ecosystem Science Cluster consists of an interdisciplinary team of eight researchers addressing critical topics such as forest disturbance and cumulative hydrological effects, trade-offs and resilience, inclusion of Indigenous values in watershed governance, and climate change adaptation. Cluster members are active researchers and leading scholars in their respective fields (science, engineering, Indigenous knowledge and policy) and share interconnected expertise in forest hydrology, water quality, urban water management and risk assessment, aquatic biology, Indigenous values, watershed governance, and integrated modelling. The cluster lead is Dr. Adam Wei.
This interdisciplinary research team is developing and testing a watershed ecosystem approach that assesses and manages critical linkages and interactions in a changing environment.
