Healthy Land & Water Systems
- Land and water systems interact in many ways. Land-based activities such as agriculture and forestry depend upon water. Water quality depends on land use and management. We investigate how urbanization, climate change, and industrial and agricultural land uses impact water systems and the implications for human health and ecosystem services. We examine how individuals and communities make decisions about land and water use and management, the use of green and gray infrastructure, and planning and policies aimed at improving water quality and sustainable land patterns.
