Dr. Amir AghaKouchak, Associate Professor in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of California Irvine, will be speaking as part of the Geological and Atmospheric Sciences Spring 2017 Seminar Series.
Title: Compound and Concurrent Climate Extremes
Location: Science Hall room 152
Date/Time: Friday, 3 February, 4:10pm
Coffee/tea and snacks will be served in the Geology Library (room 257) at 3:30pm.
Dr. Aghakouchak’s group aims to bridge between the disciplines of hydrology, climatology, and remote sensing to address critical global water resource issues. He is particularly interested in combining remote sensing techniques and physically-based and statistical approaches in order to develop more reliable models of large-scale hydrologic systems. His long-term research objective is to utilize continuously growing satellite data along with ground-based observations to develop/improve integrated drought, flood and landslide modeling, prediction and decision support systems.
