Richard Becker's research interests center around integrating remote sensing techniques with a wide variety of ground based techniques to investigate the interplay between natural and human systems on local and regional scales, both from a water resource and a hazard perspective. He is interested in investigating the nature and origin of water resources, where they are available, how human activities and climate change can affect their sustainable use, and how alterations in surface water systems can affect the surroundings and the environment at large. In addition, he applies this integrated approach to assess hazards generated by human and natural causes. At the environmental remote sensing lab he makes use of and teaches an interdisciplinary approach, which involves integrating remote sensing (from satellite to UAV scale), GIS, hydrologic modeling, geochemistry, geophysics, ecological observations and field techniques to investigate a wide range of geological and environmental problems related to water resources and the impacts of water utilization practices.
I am a Biogeochemist and Ecologist working on large range of subjects. Current interest are changes in productivity and energy balance of forest ecosystems. the long term effects of disturbances on biogeochemistry as well as the effects of forestry on climate change.
I study the effects of anthropogenic activities on the cycling of chemical elements in ecosystems. My particular area of interest is on the biogeochemical and hydrological processes that control the cycling of mercury, nitrogen, carbon, and sulfur at the watershed scale. A recent focus is the effects of climate change on streamflow with an emphasis on high flows and implications for water quality.
Joanna's main interests are focused on understanding the interactions between water, carbon and other biogeochemical cycles within terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems. She works collaboratively on interdisciplinary projects that include environmental scientists, engineers, agriculture, ecologists, social scientists, economists across research, public, private and third sectors.
Craine received his BS from The Ohio State University and his PhD from the University of California, Berkeley in 2000. He has co-authored over 100 peer-reviewed scientific publications and a book with Princeton University Press, The Resource Strategies of Wild Plants. He has worked on a variety of topics from plant traits to soil organic matter dynamics to bison performance to nutrient limitation of plant growth. Since 2014 he has helped lead a private company Jonah Ventures.
Dr. Carlos Eduardo de Rezende is a Full Professor in the Environmental Sciences Laboratory of the Biosciences and Biotechnology Center at the North Fluminense State University (UENF). Prof. Rezende is a senior researcher from the Brazilian National Council for Science and Technology (CNPq) (Level 1B), Scientist of Rio de Janeiro state from Foundation for Science Development (FAPERJ) and coordinator of the Future Earth Coasts in South America. Dr. Rezende has a professional experience including studies on the dynamics in continental aquatic environments (e.g.: rivers, lakes), terrestrial and coastal ecosystems (e.g., estuaries, mangroves and lagoons) and ocean. At UENF, Prof. Rezende held various institutional leadership roles (e.g., Vice-Rector, Dean of Undergraduate Studies, Center Director and Head of Environmental Sciences Laboratory), and he has participated in several boards and councils. Actually, Prof. Rezende is conducting studies on Hg and inorganic (e.g.: Al, Fe, Mn, carbonate) and organic geochemical supports (e.g. elemental and isotopic composition) as well as their ecosystem interactions; use of molecular markers (e.g., lignin phenols, carbon black) as geochemical tools to enhance the understanding on the alterations of biogeochemical cycles in the transition between terrestrial and aquatic environments.
Dr Guobin Fu is a Senior Research Scientist with more than 25 years of experience researching on climatic change and variability impacts on regional hydrology regimes and water resources in China, USA and Australia. It includes statistical analysing climate variability and change for hydrological applications, statistical downscaling of GCMs to provide climate inputs suitable for regional climate impact assessments, surface hydrological modelling at catchment and basin scales, and field experiments and modelling of pan evaporation and evapotranspiration. Since joining CSIRO in 2006, he has participated several high-profile key projects, such as IOCI, SEACI, Goyder Climate and sustainable yield projects.
