Human dimensions of natural resources and recreation management

  • Economics, Policy, Management, and Society
  • Forest Hydrology and Watershed Management
  • Recreation Resources, Tourism, and Environmental Education
Jacques Finlay

Broadly interested in the ecology of aquatic ecosystems and their interaction with surrounding natural and human-altered landscapes.

  • Forest Hydrology and Watershed Management
Diana L. Karwan

Variations in climate and land use; physical, chemical, and ecological transport processes
in watersheds, with emphasis on the movement of fine suspended sediments and
particulate organic material; field sampling 
and field-scale experiments, laboratory
analyses, and numerical and statistical models to describe transport processes
