Research Focus Area 1

Biophysical Ecohydrologic System

The mission of iUTAH's Research Focus Area 1 is to improve Utah's capacity to monitor, understand, and predict interactions between water resources and ecohydrology (interactions between water and ecosystems) that are essential to the future of human health and well-being, economic development, and natural ecosystems along the Wasatch Front.
