Quantifying Contributions from Glaciers and Terrestrial Hydrology to Recent and Future Sea-Level Change

Richard Lammers is a Research Assistant Professor in the Earth Systems Research Center, Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space at the University of New Hampshire. He was one of the founding members of the Water Systems Analysis Group and has been Co-Director since 2008. The focus of Dr. Lammers’ research is understanding the dynamics of global and regional-scale hydrology with an emphasis on human interactions within the hydrological cycle. His most recent work involves integrating hydrology with multi-sector dynamics of power generation systems, economic models and water rights to understand the resilience and vulnerability of the water, land, food, and energy systems. His research interests also include understanding the convergence of human and biogeophysical datasets, modeling, and analysis; inter-basin hydrological transfers; tracking glacier water through land surface hydrology; coupling agent-based and physically-based models; the hydrological cycle at high latitudes; future change; spatial datasets and geoprocessing; river networks; and techniques of Internet-based data serving and analysis.
