The HYTRAC Lab group studies influences of climate change on global water cycles relevant to human populations and ecosystems, especially in forested watersheds. We specialize in developing and analyzing tree-ring records of drought, flood, snow, runoff, ice melt, Pacific salmon, and forest vegetation - and the climate patterns that drive these processes. We work hard to provide practical datasets and information that can be used by resource managers, policy-makers, and communities confronting climate change.
