Research: Earth's Water System
Earth’s Water Cycle: Soil to Plants to Atmosphere to Space and Back
featured in the Spring 2020 issue of CEGE magazine
TWO CEGE FACULTY, XUE FENG AND ARDESHIR EBTEHAJ, EXPLAIN THEIR RESEARCH ON EARTH’S WATER SYSTEM AND THE MODELS THAT HELP THEM PREDICT WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN WHEN WATER SYSTEMS CHANGE.
XUE FENG conducts research to build understanding of the movement of water and carbon within terrestrial ecosystems, like forests and peatlands. She is interested in how that movement will affect the global climate.
ARDESHIR EBTEHAJ strives to advance a deeper and more predictive understanding of global changes in Earth’s water cycle.
