The Platte River Basin

Platte River Basic map

The focal landscape for research endeavors will be the Platte River Basin of the North American Great Plains, although comparisons and applicability of findings may apply to landscapes worldwide. Individual research project objectives include—but are not limited to—elucidating scales of coupling among social, ecological, and economic variables; developing and refining multi-scale models of groundwater discharge and recharge; and evaluating the social–ecological effects of alternative policy-based scenarios.
