Dr. Laurel Saito - Associate Professor University of Nevada, Reno
Dr. Saito will cover recent and ongoing modeling research, coupling ecological or stochastic models with the two-dimensional hydrodynamic model CE-QUAL-W2, to investigate how altered dam operations at Shasta Lake – i.e. the timing and quantity of water releases – could reduce impacts to downstream aquatic ecosystems. Investigations like this demonstrate the importance of collaborations between ecosystem research and water operations to support resilient aquatic ecosystems and a more reliable water supply.
