• Smart water landscapes

Objective

Leveraging pattern formation theory to the study of sustainable agroforestry landscapes and urban stormwater management strategies

Technical Approach

Development and studies of biomass-water models for two plant species in modulated landscapes.

Accomplishments

The model is conceptually established and partially built.

Next Steps

  • Completing model buildup
  • Model testing and validation
  • Model studies in unmodulated and modulated landscapes

Impact

The study will provide deep understanding and guidelines for the design of man-made agroforestry systems in arid conditions and for stormwater management strategies.
