Description

iUTAH is an interdisciplinary research and training program aimed at strengthening science for Utah's water future. With a five-year grant from the National Science Foundation, iUTAH (innovative Urban Transitions and Aridregion Hydro-sustainability) brings together a network of researchers, universities, governmental agencies, industry partners, and nonprofit organizations throughout the state. Our science mission is to explore how factors such as population growth, climate variability, land use, and human beliefs and behaviors inter-relate to affect the sustainability of water resources. Our associated programs in education, outreach, and diversity enhancement are designed not only to help build Utah's capacity to meet future water challenges, but to encourage students and educators to be directly involved in Utah's water research. This poster describes the breadth of research, workforce development, and outreach activities undertaken by iUTAH. Programs focused on the needs of different audiences are described, with an emphasis on iUTAH's scientific observatories and up-to-date description of efforts to bolster the state's capacity to conduct cross-cutting studies related to water and other critical resources.
