DOINews: NW CSC Fellow Conducts Outreach about Projected Hydrologic Impacts of Climate Change
Northwest Climate Science Center Graduate Fellow Ronda Strauch helped organize an interactive exhibit for the University of Washington's Engineering Discovery Days April 25 - 26. Strauch developed an interactive watershed dynamics presentation to teach visiting students and families about projected hydrologic impacts from climate change in the Northwest. Her design is based on former University of Washington (now at Notre Dame) hydrologist, Alan Hamlet's, physical model.
