The Water Center is co-sponsoring an ICTAS New Horizons seminar by Dr. Brian McGlynn on Tuesday, February 24th. The seminar, titled “Watershed Storage and the Spatial Patterns of Streamflow Generation,” will focus on the storage and release of water to streamflow as a fundamental watershed process. Despite it this, our understanding of the relationships between watershed storage state and streamflow magnitude are poorly understood, especially the roles of antecedent conditions, water redistribution patterns, and resulting hydrologic connectivity between uplands and streams. This presentation focuses on these concepts with examples from a highly instrumented and data-rich watershed located in Central Montana.
Date: February 24, 2:30 – 3:30 pm
Location: 310 Kelly Hall
ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Dr. McGlynn is Professor of Hydrology & Biogeosciences at Duke University. His field-based research focuses on the spatial and temporal scaling of hydrological and ecological processes across natural and disturbed watersheds and stream networks. He has published over 70 refereed articles in hydrology and biogeosciences, serves on the board of directors for the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc. (CUAHSI), and is currently the chair of the Division of Earth and Ocean Sciences in the Nicholas School of the Environment. Previous to his position at Duke, Brian was a professor at Montana State University in the Department of Land Resources and Environmental Sciences. Dr. McGlynn earned his M.S. and Ph.D. from the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry. Learn more at www.mcglynnlab.com.
