"Tree Rings, Drought and Water Resources"

Dr. Connie A. Woodhouse, Professor, School of Geography and Development, Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research and Department of Geosciences, University of Arizona

Dr. Woodhouse is an internationally recognized scholar and expert in the fields of paleoclimatology and climatology with applications to water resource management in the western United States. Her work has included a longstanding engagement with the reconstruction and investigation of long time series of past temperature and hydrological conditions using tree rings, understanding the driving climatological forces of drought, and working with water managers (e.g., Denver Water Board) to assist future water resource planning in western states based on paleohydrological data. Her work has been used to inform adaptation and sustainability strategies for local municipalities and government agencies in arid regions. Dr. Woodhouse also founded and is the faculty coordinator of the University of Arizona?s post-baccalaureate certificate program, Connecting Environmental Science and Decision making (CESD). Her many peer-reviewed publications have appeared in Science, Nature Climate Change, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Geophysical Research Letters, Journal of Climate, International Journal of Climatology and Climatic Change.
