Steven Glaser

Professor and Faculty Director of the CITRIS Intelligent Water Infrastructures and Adaptive Cities Initiative
Civil and Environmental Engineering

 

Research Areas: Laboratory earthquakes and nanoseismology, wireless sensors networks, snow water hydrology, internet of water, geophysics and wave propagation, geothermal energy, rock mechanics

 

Sample Projects: Operates the largest wireless network in the world, monitoring forest hydrology of snowmelt and water balance in the Sierra Nevada. The wireless sensor networks research covers a wide range of applications – from the first use of the Berkeley Mote to monitor the seismic safety of wood-frame houses to measuring the seismic response of the Masada mountain in Israel to measuring environmental hazards at Chinese historical sites such as Dunhuang.

Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics

 

Research Areas: Economics of water resources–water markets and adoption of water-saving technologies, agricultural and environmental economics.

Dennis D. Baldocchi

Professor
Environmental Science, Policy and Management

 

Research Areas: Biometeorology, biosphere-atmosphere trace gas fluxes

 

Sample Projects: Coordinated use of experimental measurements and theoretical models to understand the physical, biological, and chemical processes that control trace gas fluxes between the biosphere and atmosphere and to quantify their temporal and spatial variations. The spatial scales of this work ranges from the dimension of a leaf through the depth of plant canopies and the planetary boundary layer and the horizontal extent of landscapes.
