We prepare graduate researchers for careers that integrate science with management and policy while advancing Climate Adaptation Science for the threatened landscape of the Interior West.
About the Program
Led by Phaedra Budy, head of the Fish Ecology Lab at Utah State University, a team of researchers is using artificial warming equipment to study effects of climate change in one of the fastest-warming regions in the world.
Utah State University professor of Biology, Michelle Baker, who leads water research efforts in the state as the project director of iUTAH, was recognized for her pioneering efforts in science and technology.
The next mega-droughts and subsequent active wildfire seasons for the western U.S. might be predictable a full year in advance, extending well beyond the current seasonal forecast and helping segments of the economy related to agriculture, water management, and forestry.
