Julianne Davis is a second year M.S. student in Earth Sciences at Syracuse University. Her strong interest in remote sensing was ignited during an undergraduate research project at SUNY Geneseo studying the morphology of Martian impact craters. Her current research leverages remote sensing data to better understand Earth’s fluvial systems. During her M.S., she has used UAV data to assess the hydrologic and geomorphic impacts of beaver-inspired stream restoration efforts. She will begin a PhD at UNC Chapel Hill this fall as a NSF Graduate Research Fellow. Outside of her research, she enjoys hiking, reading non-fiction, and trying unusual produce from local farmers markets.
- 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?
