Description

Water supply and water use are extremely complex issues with many interrelating aspects. As a result, the Drought Management Project at Utah State University encompasses an extremely diverse set of people and disciplines, including climate, hydrology, engineering, soil science, horticulture, plant physiology, plant genetics, and sociology. We are unable to study the complex system in its entirety and in all its detail. However, this project is targeting key issues from the study of precipitation falling in the mountains to decisions leading to turning on the water tap. Together we present an interdisciplinary story that is unique to studies of drought in the western United States.
