James Stagge is a research hydrologist and civil engineer with a focus on hydrologic extremes, large-scale drought, and water resources management approaches to address water issues in vulnerable systems. He is also interested in how these topics are impacted by changes in climate and water demands. Dr. Stagge's current research is focused on addressing water supply issues and planning for future droughts in the Bear River, a trans-boundary river that is the largest tributary to the Great Salt Lake. This research has two major objectives: generating reconstructions of seasonal streamflow in the Bear River watershed during the past 1,200 years and simulating system performance to identify structural and operational changes that could improve resilience in the face of recent and paleo- drought events.
