NSF Science, Engineering and Engineering for Sustainability (SEES) Fellowship: Atmospheric Water Transport from Mexico to the U.S.: A Holistic, Binational Approach to Reducing Vulnerability to the North American Monsoon
This research consists of two parallel activities:
- Investigating pathways of monsoonal atmospheric moisture transport within Mexico and to the US, and how land use strategies affect these pathways
- Co-developing a decision-support tool with stakeholders on both sides of the US-Mexico border to aid in managing land/water use in light of these moisture pathways
