N-EWN Knowledge Series: https://limno.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_fe7hnfnSS5CvbiTpADWmXA
The next Knowledge Series lecture is on December 15 at 12:30 ET. Laura Naslund, UGA, will address Dam Removal Prioritization with Multiple Objectives.
Proactive and transparent decision making about the long-term management of dams is critical for successfully managing this aging infrastructure and presents an opportunity to apply Engineering with Nature principles to the end of the infrastructure lifecycle. This webinar will provide an overview of the state of dams and dam removals in the US, present results from the review of existing decision support tools and introduce a web application developed to support structured decision making for dams.
Laura Catherine Naslund is a PhD candidate in the Odum School of Ecology at the University of Georgia. Her current research examines the contribution of small dams and their reservoirs to greenhouse gas emissions from freshwaters.
