This week, we’ll look at the impact of global climate change and explore partnerships for local adaptation. We’re joined by Ed Maurer, Professor in the School of Engineering at Santa Clara University, and Bannan Institute Scholar in the Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education. Professor Maurer joined Santa Clara’s Civil Engineering Department in 2003, where he teaches courses in hydraulics, hydrology, water resources, and sustainability. His professional experience includes work in municipal water supply and wastewater engineering, climate change impacts, western tribal water rights, and rural community water supply projects in Latin America. His recent research contributions involve modeling large scale hydraulic dynamics, improving long lead forecasting, and studying regional impacts of climate change, especially on water.
