Ecosystems Research

Katie Price

I am interested in conducting scale analyses of watershed hydrologic models and input sources of meteorological data to determine which models and data types are most appropriate for use at varied spatial and temporal scales. I will be working with interpolated data from precipitation gages, PRISM, and gage-conditioned NEXRAD and TRMM data in semi- and fully-distributed watershed hydrologic models including SWAT, HSPF, GBMM, and Velma.
