Larry Band, Ernest H. Ern Professor
I am an eco-hydrologist with research spanning the continuum of natural through urban watersheds. I have a major interest in the role of forests and tree canopy on flooding and drought, the provision of high-quality freshwater, coupled water, carbon and nitrogen cycling, and vulnerability to climate and land use change.
