Graduate Pursuit: Moving beyond random acts of restoration to robust adaptive resilience: a case comparison between the U.S. and Canadian coasts of Lake Erie

 

Moving beyond random acts of restoration to robust adaptive resilience: a case comparison between the U.S. and Canadian coasts of Lake Erie

Lakes are important socio-ecological systems that provide a multitude of benefits including water for domestic and irrigation use, fish and aquatic habitat, recreation, energy and economic resources, regulation of river flows, and a linkage to groundwater.

Venture: Food Waste and The Environment

 

Food Waste and The Environment

Prior studies have measured the environmental impacts of the food system in general, of food waste specifically, or of changes in food consumption patterns based on the dietary guidelines or other trends. The types of environmental impacts studied include use of land, water, nitrogen, fossil fuels, and energy, and emissions of greenhouse gases. Approaches used include life cycle assessment, input-output analysis, and other types of modeling or accounting approaches.

Pursuit: Expanding Access to Data-intensive Remote Sensing Algorithms through Collaboration with the Socio-Environmental Science Research Community

 

Expanding Access to Data-intensive Remote Sensing Algorithms through Collaboration with the Socio-Environmental Science Research Community

In the proposed Pursuit, we seek to overcome these long-standing, enviro-climatic and disciplinary limitations by convening a diverse group of interdisciplinary, socio-environmental researchers with ongoing projects in understudied regions.

Pursuit: Planning for sustainable water futures in sub-Saharan Africa in the context of the SDGs

 

"Planning for sustainable water futures in sub-Saharan Africa in the context of the SDGs"

The goal of this proposed Pursuit is to aid planning for sustainable water futures in sub-Saharan Africa built around provision of FWES from healthy freshwater ecosystems, in support of achieving the SDGs. The team will synthesize existing knowledge and data across sub-Saharan Africa on FWES and the distribution and role of grey infrastructure.

Pursuit: People, Land, Water, and Fish in the Chesapeake Watershed

 

"People, Land, Water, and Fish in the Chesapeake Watershed"

Population growth in coastal regions of the United States and around the world is expected to continue long into the foreseeable future. Such growth has the potential for significant adverse impacts on sensitive aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. Managing and mitigating these impacts will require data driven methods, models, and tools that capture the interaction between human and natural systems.

Graduate Pursuit: Cross-scale exploitation patterns and marine population collapse in international seafood markets

 

"Cross-scale exploitation patterns and marine population collapse in international seafood markets"

Seafood is one of the most globalized food commodities with 40% traded internationally. Alarmingly, the majority of global fish stocks are either fully- (58.1%) or over-exploited (31.4%). Case-study evidence has attributed patterns of exploitation and fisheries collapse to globalized trade.

2019 Bayesian Modeling for Socio-Environmental Data Short Course

 

Solutions to pressing environmental problems require understanding connections between human and natural systems. Analysis of these systems requires a model that can deal with complexity, is able to exploit data from multiple sources, and is honest about the uncertainty from multiple sources. Synthesis of results from multiple studies is often required. Bayesian hierarchical models provide a powerful approach to analysis of socio-environmental problems.
