Utah Geographic Information Council 2017 Conference

During the summer of 2014, researchers surveyed residents of the Cache, Salt Lake, and Heber valleys as part of an NSF-funded research project called iUTAH that examines water-related issues in the light of the region’s rapid urban growth and changing climate. The survey resulted in a database of survey responses from 2400+ households, geocoded to the parcel of residence. Subsequent analysis of these data seeks to understand whether attitudes and behaviors are influenced by location.

What is the name of the event (if any) where you presented?: 
2017 Life Sciences Seminar Series

Nutrients are required for all life, but are increasing on the global scale. The cycling of nutrients is complex and impairment of water bodies can occur below toxic levels. Sources and management options extend beyond watershed boundaries. Dr. Michelle Baker '92 will discuss the challenges of nutrients in aquatic systems at multiple scales.
