Description

This paper explores the hypothesis that the fundamental constraint on the impact of scientific water research on real world actors is our inability to fully integrate human dimensions into our scientific understanding of the dynamics of complex watershed processes. The presentation will use examples from models designed to explain hydrologic processes and water quality dynamics in human-impacted watersheds to illustrate key limitations in the representation of human elements of these systems.
