Julianne Davis is a Ph.D. student in the Global Hydrology Lab at UNC Chapel Hill and a NSF Graduate Research Fellow. This is her second year in AGU H3S. She received a BA in Geological Sciences from the State University of New York at Geneseo where she studied impact craters at the landing site of NASA’s InSight mission to Mars and a MS in Earth Sciences from Syracuse University, where she used UAVs to examine beaver-related stream restoration projects. Her current research uses remote sensing and hydrodynamic modeling to study hydrology, sediment transport and geomorphology in rivers and deltas, focusing on sub-Arctic regions. Outside of work, she is usually exploring different parks, hiking, reading non-fiction, or trying to become a better cook.
- Research Tidbit: Where will snow survive in a warming world?Higher snowfall intensity is associated with reduced impacts of warming upon winter snow ablation Climate change is transforming winters throughout the western U.S. Warmer temperatures and winter rainfall reduce the magnitude of snow accumulation and alter the timing of snowmelt. Snowcapped mountaintops, characteristic of the western U.S, melt earlier in the spring, sending water rushing … Continue reading Research Tidbit: Where will snow survive in a warming world?
