Abstract and Bio
The completely virtual HAS seminar this week will honor Dr. Tom Meixner by inviting an early career researcher, Dr. Scott Jasechko, with expertise in isotope hydrology and water resources--something Tom strongly supported. We look forward to your virtual attendance to hear about some exciting science and/or being in the community online if you feel comfortable.
Scott Jasechko is an Associate Professor of water resources with The University of California, Santa Barbara's Bren School of Environmental Science & Management. Before joining The University of California, Santa Barbara in November 2017, Scott completed his doctorate at The University of New Mexico and was on the faculty at the University of Calgary for three years. Scott's research uses large datasets to understand how we can preserve the quality and sustain the quantity of river water and groundwater resources around the globe. He has published more than three dozen articles in journals, including Science, Nature, and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. His work has been recognized by numerous early career awards, including the Horton Hydrology Research Award from the American Geophysical Union (2013), the Young Scientist Award from the Canadian Geophysical Union (2016), the Kohout Early Career Award from the Geological Society of America (2018), the Hydrologic Sciences Early Career Award from the American Geophysical Union (2021), a CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation (2021), and the Macelwane Medal from the American Geophysical Union (2022).
