Join Enrique Vivoni, professor in the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment and the School of Earth and Space Exploration, on a trip to Mexico to learn about the water resources and environmental sustainability of the US-Mexico border.
You will learn about water resources in a setting where it is more limited, more contentious, less robust and less resilient. As a result, important contrasts can be drawn with our own water resources sustainability issues in the United States and a discussion about bi-national water resources can be enriched.
From snow-covered mountain conifer forests to coastal deserts with magnificent cactus, the field trips will exhibit the diversity of conditions that serve as a challenge to water resources management. In addition, students will interact with Mexican students, researchers, and water managers.
