About Kelly E. Gleason

Dr. Kelly Gleason’s research focuses on the interactions and feedbacks of hydrology, climatology, and ecology under a changing climate system. Dr. Gleason uses creative experimentation, micro-meteorology, geochemical analysis, remote sensing, and integrated modeling of eco-hydro-climate systems to evaluate how acute disturbances such as forest fire, and prolonged disturbances such as drought and climate change, alter local physical hydroclimatological mechanisms (such as snow accumulation and snow melt) and influence regional-scale water resource availability.
