AGU 2019

Posted by Yifan Cheng on December 17, 2019

In AGU 2019, I presented two posters, one for myself and one for my collaborator F. R. Fonseca. For the past three years, we worked together in an NSF-funded interdisciplinary study, investigating climate change impacts on food-water-energy nexus in the Southeastern United States. My work focuses on water, and his work focuses on energy.


In this poster, I aimed to simply illustrate the impacts of climate change and human activities on the thermal regime in a regulated river system, and how that would affect the freshwater fish distribution in the Southeastern United States. We used a physically-based modeling framework to simulate river temperature in a complicated multi-reservoir system, and we have summarized this work in a paper, which is currently under revision in Water Resources Research.
