Description

Scott Tyler, hydrology engineer at the University of Nevada Reno and AGU Hydrology section president, shares his work on Antarctic ice shelves, nuclear waste, and stream restoration. Do we need to build sea walls in ten years or in one hundred fifty? Should we switch more power production to nuclear to achieve greater energy independence? Scott answers these questions and shares the growth of hydrology at AGU as well as his hopes for his upcoming leadership. “Sea level rise will affect us in the developed world,” he says, and he hopes his research will help us prepare for how to navigate the effects of climate change. “We can fix this,” Scott says.
