Workshop

Future Terrestrial Water Availability: Towards an Integrated Perspective on Water, Plants, and Climate

calendar
Oct 20th, 2024 - Oct 25th, 2024
location
Aspen

Plants play a crucial role in regulating water fluxes between land and atmosphere and their response to climate change will influence future water availability and drought risk around the world. Currently, projections of future water availability are uncertain due to a lack of understanding of the role of plants, in part because solving this problem requires integration across a wide range of disciplines and tools, from climate dynamics to ecohydrology. The workshop will bring together these disciplines and develop strategies to reduce uncertainty in water availability projections globally and regionally.
