We have recently started a new, interdisciplinary, NSF-funded, 4-year, $1.6M project aimed at achieving an integrated understanding of the dynamic, reciprocal relationship between environmental and social (institutions and values) systems by examining dam and reservoir operations, the decision-making process governing those operations, and feedbacks between this decision-making process and the environment.  We are looking for students to participate in this research, focused on greenhouse gas and nutrient responses to management actions, including manipulations of water level and water residence time.  Please send CV and a letter of inquiry to John Harrison if interested in participating in this project.
