Brendan O’Leary’s Research Showcase: Evaluating the pathways and risks for shallow urban groundwater in the Great Lakes Basin
Urban centers face many environmental issues that can lead to direct impacts on community health, property values, and environmental justice. Understanding pollutant movement in the environment and how it impacts urban health is critical for sustainable urban development, particularly when evaluating the sustainability of urban water systems. This cross-over between urban health and hydrology brought … Continue reading Brendan O’Leary’s Research Showcase: Evaluating the pathways and risks for shallow urban groundwater in the Great Lakes Basin
Esther Lee’s Research Showcase: What does hydraulic redistribution tell us about how ecosystems respond to climate change?
PHD CANDIDATE IN UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS—URBANA CHAMPAIGN During her adolescence, Esther met a girl in Kenya who struggled a whole day to get fresh drinking water. Looking at the girl, she wondered: Why do some children waste fresh water in luxury while other children suffer from drinking waste water? Why do some children get public … Continue reading Esther Lee’s Research Showcase: What does hydraulic redistribution tell us about how ecosystems respond to climate change?
