Project Description

The proposed project examines how climate change has affected water resources and linked aquatic and human ecosystems by combining the scientific disciplines of hydrology and ecology (hydroecology), the interface of ecological systems and water, to investigate paleoclimate in eastern Nevada and employing science-based technology that can be used by decision makers. The project will (1) determine the effects of long-term climate change on the biology and hydroecology of two spring systems in the Spring Valley, eastern Nevada; and (2) develop a framework for evaluating the effect of alternative water policies.
